    So, I don't think this has been suggested before, I pose the risk of getting flamed for days if it has ^^

    My suggestion, if a user has less than 50 posts, before they are allowed to post a thread of any sort, they are shown a message "Are you sure you want to post that?" with a list of similar threads based on what they have just typed. I know there is a "Similar Threads" section at the bottom of every thread, so perhaps it could be shown a little earlier.

    It would possibly reduce the number of "Help a newbie" threads I see a thousand of every day.
