    Move these users into a primary usergroup that cannot create tags.

      Maybe write a plugin that gives those users a No Permission page if they try to add tags? I'm not really sure, but that is probably what I would try to do.

        Its been a long time since i've done this ... What are the steps needed to create a clone of the basic "registered" user, and then disable their tagging privileges?

          If you go into AdminCP > Usergroups > Add New Usergroup, you'll see a dropdown which lets you create a group based on an existing one. Do this then edit the privileges accordingly.

            Did you try ordering them to stop? My method of handling them is telling them to stop and then giving them an infraction accordingly. If they keep ignoring you, ban them. Your site, you're the head hancho not them.
