Is there a way to mark a post or thread "private" so it's hidden from everyone other than admins and the OP? It doesnt seem the the permission system would support this natively, but I thought I'd ask before delving into a hack project.

You need this extension

The name is a little confusing but it should do what you want. Test it on a separate installation of 3.3 first.

I'm running 3.2.5; are you implying that you're not sure it works ok on 3.3?

We always assume people are running the latest version unless they say otherwise.

You can see the tested version in the download box on that page so you should be fine on 3.2.5. It hasn't been specifically written for 3.3.x yet.
