Sometimes after starting a post, I decide not to continue.

As there is no "Cancel" button on the "Post a New Discussion thread" page (See below) I usually have to delete what I wrote and then move back or forward to another destination. Is there another alternative, or do you think a Cancel button should be added?

1. I do that now and then too.

If you just go back or forward a page, the post will disappear. No need to erase.

2. Just abandon it, don't hit "post my reply" button.

and go elsewhere, either on the site or off it.

3. If you hit the back button it asks do you mean to disregard the comment; just say yes

But I do close the browser window.
