Then use this tool to deal with it.

Seamless – essential

I’ve added this plugin to my official recommended bbPress plugins.

It is seamless, does exactly what is needed to control visitors who highjack topics. Don’t know how one could run a forum without this plugin.

Nicely laid out, very helpful…

All three of this author’s bbPress plugins including this one are amazingly well designed and laid out… Their user interfaces seem to have had a lot of attention to detail… And best of all, all three are very helpful, give me some possibilities I’ve been seeking for a while, and I’ve yet to experience any glitches with them…

To be as new as they are and still be able to say this about them seems to suggest the possibility of some good support and additional features in the future…
