When i'm typing on a specific games board, especially a newly released game with lots of new messages, I find the "similar topics already on this board" to contain spoilers.

I'd type a location in a certain game in the topic yet an area in the game much further on would be revealed to me because it shared one word. I could type "in the first area" yet a topic where a person typed "last area" would appear because of the word "area."

I really wish there was an option to remove this feature. It might be there to show a person if a similar topic was made recently, but I avoided looking at it at all costs due to the likely chance of getting spoiled big time.
Kiss my ring, it's a Frank White thing.

I felt it was a waste of space really, but your reasoning actually makes more sense.
I'll sign. I don't think I ever clicked on anything there anyway.
