    "Cancel" available in "Post New Thread" function?

    If there is one, I can't find it. If there is not one, might I recommend that one be added? While posting a question, a solution occurred to me, and it worked. The only solution I could find to cancel my question was to simply leave the page. What say?

    I'd say that's how the web works, in most circumstances. If you hadn't posted yet, what should the Cancel button do?

    You could also click the browser back button or pick a favorite from your browser interface, or something similar. I understand the Cancel button could make any of these easier, but doesn't seem indispensable to me.

    In those circumstances, I usually click Refresh (F5 in all browsers).
