How to lock a news story from new comments?

I apologize in advance if this is the wrong forum, but I need help with the news module.

Occassionally when posting a news story, the comments start going extremely off-topic, or even worse, degenerate into wars between the trolls on the site.

On a recent story for example with 170+ comments, I desperately need a way to keep people from being able to create new comments. The comments are now hopelessly off-topic and it's taking a lot of time deleting new off-topic comments.

Is there any way to add (or already perform) the functionality to "lock" a news story like the newbb module does with individual topics?

Thanks,

Wayne

Actually it's me and Hervet - Predator is just too lazy to remove himself from the projects

I will strongly consider this feature - it is not currently possible to disable comments for individual news items.

Thank you. Any way to get something like that sooner or perhaps at least with the next release? It's very important to several people I'm sure.
