As your typing out your ingenious thought that someone else has already thought of and posted eons ago, once you complete enough words for a match to another specific topic, it alerts you.

Or I could search better...

       Ooooh, this would be both wonderful and terribly annoying, as all autocomplete functions are.

       Sounds like it could also be used as an HB glossary.

       A warning when you submit your idea would use far less custard. Am I using the term custard correctly?

       It actually kind of scares me.
