Post The sacred Anti-Newb device
I have discovered a phpBB Mod named Warn of Old Topic Before Posting Reply. Sounds interesting?

I don't have a forum of my own to try it out on, so I'm not sure whether or not it will live up to its name. Would anybody like to give it a try though? I'm sure many of you would appreciate it if dead posts would stay that way.

EDIT: I just read the comments on that first page; there's a demo forum here:

No matter what you do to prevent stupidity, stupid people will find new ways to be stupid. Child-proofing the board would be like giving them that opportunity like so much crustless PB&J bag-lunch.

They need to touch that iron to find out it's hot. They need to get clipped by that Buick to learn to look both ways. They need to have their stomachs pumped to learn Advil isn't candy.

I know you mean well, but slapping a helmet and name-tag on Skippy McNewberson to prevent a possible Darwin Award only keeps the dumbshit around longer than he needs to be.
