    An idea - remove the "post new thread" button within posts. Make it so you can only start a new thread from the forum menu.

    My point exactly...
     
  4. I agree. I hit that button often and realize after i wrote my message that i did in fact hit the "post new thread" button. It's annoying.
     
  5. Or at least add some sort of virtual slapping device for newbies that do press that button.
