I built the following code using another forum discussion.  However, the original code was developed so that the reply form would still be visible.  Can anybody tell me how to modify the code so that it also hides the reply comment form?  I want this code to eliminate ALL commenting for users that meet the specified criteria.  Thanks for any help.

add_filter('wpdiscuz_form_render', 'pp_hide_comment_form', 10, 3);
function pp_hide_comment_form($output, $commentsCount, $currentUser) {

// specify list of tags that trigger loss of commenting privileges
$disallowed_tags = array('Email-Status-invalid', 'Email-Status-spamtrap', 'Email-Status-do_not_mail');

// hide the comment form if user has a disallowed tag
if (!empty($currentUser->ID) && wpf_has_tag($disallowed_tags)) {
$output = preg_replace('~<div class="wpd-form[^"\']+wpd-main-form-wrapper[^>]+>.*?(<div id="wpdiscuz_hidden_secondary_form")~is', '$1', $output);
}

return $output;

}

Follow-up: I was able to fix this by simply changing the $ouput to an alert message that informs the user their commenting ability has been disabled.
