Nothing is more irratating these days (other than myspace kids hotlinking) than sites disabling the back button ..

Couldn't agree more!

Those webmasters who disable back buttons should have their webmaster tickets revoked and be subjected to 1000 hours of "Don't Worry, Be Happy" played over and over again! ;)

I agree. It shouldn't be too difficult to punish them for such techniques, surely?

Add that to the prevent right-click hack.

There is a very simple solution to this.

Disable JavaScript!

These tricks are done with javascript, turn it off and you won't have this problem.

With Firefox you can even disable peices of javascript leaving others active but allowing you to turn off the crap that is bugging you.
