How to disable accidental keyboard input in a Linux terminal

Sometimes I type in the wrong window in a multi-monitor setup without knowing and end up spamming WeeChat IRC.

To prevent that, I now use gnome-terminal and turn on “Read-Only” mode. This useful feature is, however, not available in other terminals. Please share in the comments if you know of alternatives.
