I know we’re able to set groups at one of three privacy levels. But I’m wondering if it is within the realm of possibility to set a forum topic as more private than the group overall, so that delicate discussions can take place only among commenters when necessary, rather than being visible to anybody who happens to be looking at the site. (Or is that already the case for group posts? If so, I feel supremely silly.)
