How to prevent double-click title bar to minimize in OS X

OS X finder has an extremely annoying feature; when you double-click the title-bar of a window, it minimizes into the dock. I can't even begin to count the number of times I've accidentally doubled clicked the title bar. Usually I'm looking to open a new tab in Chrome and instead the window hides down into the dock, sigh!

Needless to say, this infuriated me to near incredible hulk levels.


Fortunately today, I figured out how to disable this behavior.

System Preferences -> Dock -> Double-click a window's title bar to minimize


Crisis averted, and hulk no smash!

I knew there was a way to stop this, but could not remember it. Thanks! What an annoying feature.
