Basically limiting all usergroups to read only permissions, and taking away any and all other permissions ( like PMs, profile changes, posting etc. ), disabling logs, removing bans, disabling registrations - should end up in an archive that only admins can change.

How you can help SMF

"Before you allow people access to your forum, especially in an administrative position, you must be aware that that person can seriously damage your forum.
 Therefore, you should only allow people that you trust, implicitly, to have such access." -Douglas
