I've got this one forum where I don't want any new topics posted by users. But do want them to be able to comment. 

I've experimented with "Forum Accesses" and permissions on the actual forum itself, giving Guests the right to post comments. But that allows non-resisted users to post comments on all videos. I sure don't want that.
