Enable "No Access" Forum Setting for Public

Hopefully this is a small change, but a useful one.

I would like to create a forum for private discussions among Board of Director members.

So as not to rub it in members' noses that there's a forum they are excluded from, I don't want it listed in the Forums List page.

So I restrict it to members of the Directors group.

Good: Members can't see it in the Forums list page.

Bad: Public visitors can see it. So can Members if they log out.

This thread http://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308929-general-discussion-and-questions/suggestions/8825143-how-do-i-restrict-forum-access-to-members-only explains the reasoning behind disabling Public No Access. That's fine if you don't care about the public seeing the forum name.

But I do.

(More generally, why disable a setting because you think you know all the ways your customers will want to use your system?)
