"Open Draft" appears instead of "New Topic"

If a draft has been saved (which can happen without a user clicking “save draft for later”), Discourse only offers the option “Open Draft”; “New Topic” is unavailable until the “draft” has been dealt with.

Unfortunately, in English “open draft” can mean “create a new draft” as well as “open an existing draft” - users will think “why am I not allowed to post here” until they figure out what is going on.

Can I as a user turn off this “draft” functionality in Discourse? If not, is it possible to turn it off system-wide? I don’t believe that it is needed for functional parity with either the old forums or the help system, which is what these forums are supposed to replace.
