Ability to remove listeners immediately
Add the ability to remove listeners immediately instead of banning them and waiting for the ban to take effect. Makes it easier to fight suspected stream rippers.

Like to have the option to ban User Agents. Would help stop those using Rippers. Also like to have the option to kick users rather than ban them if I don't want too.

There are times when a listener is unaware that they have several browsers open when they are tuned in . When they do this, the TLH is treating each open browser as a separate listner . It would be nice if we can immediately disconnect the listener to avoid access TLH. Having the ability to do this will cut down on the money paid as a result and keep us from banning a faithful listener.

i agree. an immediate removal, but not necessarily a ban. it could prevent many things that add up to wasted tlh.
This feature should be a no-brainer. The current option of "banning" an IP is of very little use since doing so let's the listener continue to listen for the duration of the current session, 2 hours being the minimum time that we can set. After they are disconnected due to session limits and realize that their IP no longer works, they just use a VPN, get a new IP address and continue with another 2 hour session. I have unequivocal proof that this is happening on my station with literally hundreds of TLHs being used by these VPN stream rippers. I have no doubt that if I could immediately kick them from the connection, they would eventually go away. I can only assume that Live365 does not have a problem with this because those stolen (from me) TLHs contribute to their total system-wide TLHs which is used to set advertising prices in the streams.. the more, the better. It's our station, we are paying for it. We should have this ability if we deem it necessary to use.
