I would like to see something done to restrict or better still stop zzzz kibbers. BBO is free to join so why have this feature / facility?

The benefits of having this feature are: . . . . . what?
The disadvantages of having this feature are: It is used by those sick people who can't help themselves looking for ways to cheat.

Either stop this feature or include a feature within the table options to exclude zzzz's from Kibbing.

Couldn't agree more. If I play on BBO, which is very rare these days, I try to be the host and do not allow any kibitzers at the table. I find it distracting trying to play a serious game with the amount of chat that is allowed on here, together with keeping a watchful eye on who is joining the table as a kibitzer. It's not only the zzzz kibitzers who are potentially cheats: I have noticed some mysterious bids and plays when other registered kibitzers have joined a table I am at too.

I am not against kibbers/kibbing, I often watch in the hope that I might learn and that's useful. It's the anonymity of the zzzz kibber that is abused by cheats that irks me. Thinking about my request/suggestion and how it could be effectively implemented . . . . I suggest that BBO introduce a feature that would enable any member of a table to eject any zzzz kibber.
