A so-called easter-egg (i.e. a hidden functionality) displays the message "Self-comparison detected. Initiating infinite loop eschewal protocol. Self destruct in 3...2...1...Wake up. The Matrix has you. Follow the white rabbit. Don't let this happen again. Go back." whenever a user accidently compares a post revision to itself.

This may irritate non-techy users.

This plugin replaces the irritating message with a no-fuss error message.
