No you can not. It is a Usergroup permissions, not a forum permission. Maybe i'll think about adding that in a future version.

OK ... thanks.

I was thinking of using it like the anonymity hack to let users post anonymously in a "confessions" forum. (the proper anonym hack is buggy)

I'll look forward to the time you do, but I may still use it for it's proper purposes in the meantime.
