I haven't done any permissions in a while and gon rusty

I simply want to exclude certain groups from a Category - embarrassingly basic.
I did it with the permissions page for that Category - making some of the items RED NO so a usergroup can see it's there but not read content.
Is that OK?
Ive had dire warnings not to use the RED NO but I cant see how else to do this.

Jake I thought permissions were vertical as it were with individual forum overrriding a general usergroup etc but ONLY for that forum
otherwise whats the point of having the red NO on a node?

Yes. Never for a permission for a specific node means members of that group will never have that permission for that node.
