Disable "Start New Discussion" Button on the Panel

I was looking to disable the "start new discussion" button on the panel and cannot find where to go to remove it. I'm on the standard vanilla them and sure I'm just overlooking it.

    If you just want to remove it. you can add this in your custom.css
    a.BigButton{ display:none;}

    ( if you don't have custom.css file. just create one and save it in theme/default/design )

    Hiding all BigButtons is not the best idea as they're used for Conversations and profile pictures too. Do something like this instead, targeting only the "New Discussion" button in the sidepanel:

    #Panel . NewDiscussion {
        visibility: hidden;
        display: none;
