Forums are set up so only those with permission may see and/or enter them. There are Administration forums here that only the Moderators can see. The same thing could be done with any forum or group of members. For example, let's say you had someone who could not post in particular forum without being antagonistic, making it impossible to have a civil discussion, they would simply be moved into a "group" that has no access to that particular forum. This happens on other forums, but I was hoping that it wouldn't be necessary here. So far, we've been blessed with members who have been able to police themselves, but as we grow, things may change. This is the most unpleasant aspect of running a forum. You want everyone to be able to "be themselves", yet you have to try and ensure a friendly atmosphere.
