I'm still unclear how you can have private forum areas in addition to public forum areas. For instance, perhaps you want to set up a specific Q&A area for moderators. How do you "carve out" that space? More specifically, I want Drupal as my proxy source, so that we can pass a users role as well as authentication. Those user roles would determine what forums are accessible.
Is that possible? When I search for private discussions, I see a lot of comments about the whispering system, but that seems oblique to private discussions areas where multiple people participate.
