Due to some... overly enthusiastic mouse-clicking, I have now accidentally removed a skill from my bindings in the middle of combat several times.

Is there a way to lock my selection in to prevent me from accidentally click-dragging the skills of my action bar?

Wait what? Why are you ever clicking on your skills from your action bar? Use the hotkeys like a real human being. – LessPop_MoreFizz May 17 '12 at 0:30
@LessPop_MoreFizz I wasn't clicking on the skills to use them! I was accidentally clicking on them to target a mob too close to the bottom of my screen. Of course I use the hot keys! – Beofett May 17 '12 at 0:31
Yep, happens to me, too. Can be really annoying. – Jonas May 17 '12 at 12:29
@Jonas glad I'm not the only one! – Beofett May 17 '12 at 12:39

Disabling elective mode should disable you from moving them off.

And blizzard has recently announced that they're working on a lock for elective mode too! – Raven Dreamer Jun 2 '12 at 7:34
As an important note, disabling elective mode does not force your skills to return to the proper category. If you want a build with multiple skills from a category: enable elective mode, set your skills, disable elective mode. All skills set will stay set and there won't be any issue with dragging off the action bar – Dave McClelland Jun 3 '12 at 13:57
