A user who starts a topic should be able to restrict a portion of the initial post to only those people who reply to the topic. (HIDE tag?)

A user should however not be able to hide ALL the content of that initial post.

 

You could also consider making it available to Platinum grade members only, or Gold and above.

    Can you give me an example of how and why that would be done?

      It is something like this:  [hide] my hidden message on reply [/hide]

      It is popular in vBulletin. Whatever is between the tags could only be seen upon reply to the topic thread.

      Some baords use a thank you button. In that case the hidden content could not be accessed unless the thank you button is clicked.

      The idea is that there are many people who view posts, leech of the hard work of others and do not show a drop of appreciation. Forcing them to reply to see certain content doesn't mean they truly appreciate it but at least you would know which people appear to be interested in your posts.
