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.

       "Warning: your idea has been identified as unoriginal. It bears many many resemblances to [Idea1], [Idea2] and [Idea3] and will likely be pilloried by other users. Please ensure that your idea is significantly different to those above or risk fishbone disaster."

       <irritating paper clip stylee> "It looks like like you're typing an unoriginal idea. Do you want me to:
1) add auto links to the original idea
2) send it to the recycling bin

       Sphericon custard pirates playing guitars made out of an oloid that rolls (see link) in a wobling pattern you could have them in your office and you call the number for tech support and viola! you have custardy computer!

       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?   

       I'm not totally sure about the custard/tumbleweed thing here at HB.   

       It actually kind of scares me.
