I'd like to suggest an improvement to the way admins can restrict certain members from accessing specific forum sections.
On 3.x it was possible to do this by setting up a custom permission mask and assigning it to that member. This was really useful as it was both effective and subtle i.e. it worked without drawing unnecessary negative attention to that member.
Unfortunately in 4.x permission masks were removed so it's no longer possible to do this.
Currently the only option is to create a whole new member group every time you want to restrict a member from accessing or posting in any given forum section.
This has several disadvantages:
Ideally it would be good if there was a way to restrict someone's access to specific forum sections without them having to be placed inside a publicly visible, special group that is separate from the rest of the community.
