Whilst I appreciate the convenience of importing this as a product, it appears to redirect all members (even admins) when they log in.

Since it is a relatively simple matter to write a plugin that only affects specific usergroups - or indeed a series of plugins that can redirect different usergroups to different places, I'm wondering how this hack offers further benefit?

For example, I use the following to redirect banned users to a page telling them they're banned:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

The text in red can be varied according to the usergroup / usergroup ID# / desired destination. Should it be required to redirect multiple usergroups to the same place, simply enter the usergroup ID's seperated by a comma.

This further example would send registered users to a forum of your choice:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

I don't wish to sound rude, but as yet I do not see the benefit of a product that simply redirects everyone, irrespective of their usergroup. If I'm missing some additional benefits here, I'd be grateful if someone would explain what they may be?
