Intercept host keys to prevent publishing or posting

I was writing a blog post and saved it as a draft. After doing some more editing, I pressed cmd-s as a matter of habit to save a document, which instead published the blog. Unfortunately, there is no warning when publishing a blog and no option to revert back to draft. I had to delete the blog post. The same also happens with discussions or pressing the Return key in the subject line.

 

Perhaps it's a problem with the editor, and I don't know if this also happens on a PC or other browsers, but I assume it does. I think the platform needs to intercept or disable certain host or browser keys that would otherwise post or publish information, or at least pop up a confirmation dialog before publishing.
