It doesn't stop anyone from posting, it stops the message that pops up notifying you when you are replying to a thread that someone else has replied while you were posting.

Okay, this is an old thread, but the issue's still valid.

Why would anyone not want to know the topic they're posting to had been changed while they were typing? Someone might've just answered the question the OP asked, or made the same point(s) you were about to post (not redundantly). Why would anyone object to this?

This originated back in the heady days of the first Clackvent, when dozens, scores, maybe sometimes hundreds, of people would be posting in the same thread at the same time.

I still think there should be a way to actually prevent anyone else from posting to a topic while you're posting to it. Or maybe the whole website—yeah, that'd really be good.
