Default suggestion regarding replies

in some cases typin the reply takes some time and after you send the reply you then discover that another member alredy made a very similar reply basicly making your reply unnessary , so it would be great if that when a member sends a reply the thread is checked for newer replies (newer after he clicked reply/accessed the thread that is) and if new replies found then it rejects the new reply and return the user to the reply page with a remark in some nice color like red that says "there have been new replies to this thread please read before posting a new reply"

Good idea, however, and easier solution would be to have the page refresh with the Post previews at the bottom of the page so you can simply check for new replies while writing yours.
