I think thats a pretty good suggestion.

Never ran into this problem. Also I haven't seen posts along the lines of "Oops, I didn't want to start a new topic, how can I delete?" so far.

You might not see them because the mods delete these threads.
Personally, I've never found it an issue, but it could be that It's now a reflex how to reply/start new topic from a thread after so many posts.

I did this once as a newbie, and noticed right away because the post new topic page is different from the post reply. I knew something was fishy when I could enter a title / description for what I thought was a reply.
Maybe as a solution, the two could be more separated, or different colors.

agreed there needs to be something different done there irish_john. I was thinking of putting the post new topic button over on the left instead of right and in a different button style.

In other forums I have seen the "post reply" button BELOW the accumulated messages. Sounds reasonable: it's a little incentive to read ALL of the posts so far before you start to reply.
