The problem with making an entire board private is that it means that newbies get fed up with not being able to post and go elsewhere. Tho you can have certain sections open (one forum I go on has a public GD area and a VIP discussion area for regular members), making the entire forum private means that newbies not only have nowhere to post, but it also makes it difficult to we'ed out the nogoods, plus might mean that decent posters might be put off.
