Very good point, to be clear I really want to address perceived 
performance, which is hurt right now by the things we do before 
redirecting people after they post. (The actual posting part is pretty 
much instant.)

Not really. I guess the first step would be some immediate feedback that 
pressing the button did something. My best suggestion here would be to 
deactivate the post fields (so people don't post multiple times).
