I move old threads to 'old' forums so that people cannot have their characters remember with the accuracy of text. Most people cannot see these old forums
I don't understand the problem: listing all of your posts respects forum reading permissions: if some of those are within forums where the author has no read access then the post is never listed in full either.
That's what I thought would be the case, but it didn't prove to be true. People could search for posts that they made that existed in forums they no longer had access to. Further, they could look at other people's posts in forums that they don't have access to. I think the problem is that I have threads and entire forums that I'm moving which people once had access to and posted to. Even though those forums are moved in such a way that people can't see them, the search function still works for them possibly because they had standard access when those posts were made.
So it seems my solution is to either turn off the search function for all users in a certain group using the 'never' permission or else go through the permissions of the twenty or so groups and switch everything
to "no". Problem with the first solution, fast as it is, is that I want the people who remember everything to be able to use the search function. If I have players in a group that has the 'Never Search' applied is there a way to overrule that, through user permissions perhaps? Or is 'Never' the end all be all as I think it is?

You could try removing searching in the Old forum using forum permissions.
A good idea, but again steps on my problem with wanting a certain few users to be able to search to their hearts content, because they bought the ability to do so.
