Trap Banned Members: They can not logout (VB3)

I'm releasing this ported version of an old very tiny hack upon request. It is a 1 line hack that prevents banned usergroups (or any other usergroup you want) to log out. Since they can not log out, they can not reregister either.

The hack prevents them to clear the cookies so they are stuck with their banned usernames in the forum. But obviously this applies:
a) If user is a cookie user
b) If he is not able to clear them manually in his computer.

So the hack is effective for novices only. Tested in vB3.0.0, should work in all vb 3.x versions though. Vb2.x version is here. Click install if you use it, thanks!

VB3.5 version is here:

Nice hack thnx,

as for the user must be using cookies, thats easy.. you just make that group use cookies which is simple in vB3 by global edit command :)
