Forum Permissions

I've read some tickets about being able to lock a forum from posting etc. I think this isn't about just "locking a forum", but being able to define the forum's permissions. It is quite unacceptable not to be able to define forum permissions in a forum application nowadays.

The core includes all the necessary features, aka user roles and necessary functions to check the user's capabilities. All is needed is to be able to set the minimum user role that can read, add topics, write posts on a per-forum basis in the forum-edit screen inside the admin panel.

The permission verification can then be included in all functions that are related to reading a forum or posting to it.

I would like to emphasize the fact that forum permissions should be considered as core functionality only and not something that can be added by a plugin. Everything should be built around permissions IMHO. Unfortunately, this is how it is.
