Principle of least surprise

Dunno whether this is a bug or a design decision or what, but it's a
pretty nasty breach of the principle ...
Why, when I click on a cell, does calc NOT select the clicked cell?
Okay, I know the answer - it's a hyperlink. BUT.
I was editing a csv, I've got a column of email addresses, and some of
them have been hyperlinked, some of them haven't. I don't want
hyperlinks, I didn't ask for hyperlinks, and I can't see any way of
easily removing them!
Okay, I know I can be a moaner but the people who will be bitten by this
are the people who least know how to get out of it. I've probably
damaged my spreadsheet because when I clicked on the cell I wanted to
edit, it's left the highlight on the PREVIOUS cell and I've trashed that
by mistake. NOT nice.
