Thead Lock out option for the OP?

Since certain members are more concerned with preaching, pot stirring, and simply derailing threads then they are with contributing to threads, is it possible to have a function that would allow the OP to lock out certain members from posting within a thread? or have the ability to delete posts that the OP deems as a derailment from the topic?

Just a thought. I see this happening to different degrees on several forums. It is usually petty grudge stuff that would go away if an OP's thread could be managed by the OP(OP determines if a post is off topic).
