Is there an easy way to disable mouse-3 (right click) from killing selected regions? I didn't see anything in the customize options that looked like it would do it. Wouldn't mind disabling middle button click paste as well.

    Does this answer your question? How to unbind a key?

  • You're right, @Drew, I meant kill. The other does answer my question, but I do not know how long it would have taken me to realize that on my own; I wasn't thinking in terms of unbinding a key from an action so much as setting an option for whatever functionality is bound to mouse-3 by default.

    Edited title per your comment: kill, not yank.

I guess (global-set-key [mouse-3] nil) should do it
