The MOD in itself is not superfluous at all, there is no standard functionality to accomplish what it does (it's not about hiding entire forums, it is about hiding specific topics, namely hiding topics to everyone but the author).
What my comment is about, is that I think the way it works could be simpler.
- Specify per forum whether topics in it are only visible to the author.
- Give selected people a board wide
permission allowing them to ignore this setting and in fact view all topics in such forums.
- Define a per forum
permission that determines whether someone can view all topics or just their own.
My proposition could be harder to implement, but it would make more sense from an administrato's point of view.
