We are a table of 4 who play regularly. We donít want others joining our game. If we take too long to think about a bid, we get bumped off and new player comes to table. We donít like to be rude and leave table, we just want our original players back at the table. How do we stop BBO from bumping our original players from the table?

I don't know if you can stop players from being removed when taking too long to bid or play but you can set "permission required to play" so that when a player is removed, the empty seat won't be taken by a random player.

And no matter what methods you play, it is essential, for anyone aspiring to learn to be a good player, to learn the importance of bidding shape properly. - MikeH

Permission required to play also prevents them from being removed in the first place. It's the most asked and answered question on the forum (most recently about yesterday I believe), so perhaps it should be made more obvious in BBO itself.

This is definitely on topic for a "not bbo related" forum. B-)

I was kidding, Jilly, but... this forum is part of "Bridge Related Discussion (Not BBO-related)". See the links at the top of the page.
