Since we can't disable 'Register new members' access, there should be a permission to disable it. As it's for owners only.

Cannot see this being implemented and when I was on the dev team, I would have said no - for the reasons given in topic.

You do not need to make a permission for every single thing, because that would quickly become utterly unmanageable.

In short... No.

As I already said, your concept might be true for your own forum... However, on all of the forums that I run and thousands of others, such a permission is not restricted to owners... It is granted to anyone who can manage the users....
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.
