If your goal is to make this so unfriendly to users that you can excuse shutting it down, then just shut it down. If your goal is to really provide a free, safe, supportive place... Then invest in fixing the site so that people can log in, post, reply, navigate, etc., without running into a plethora of errors to such a point that there's only frustration, and no support available.
