Read only ideas portal user

It would be good to have the concept of a read-only or vote-only ideas user permission

This would effectively allow users to vote on existing ideas, but not create new ones.

    This would greatly help my team out. 

    While our sales team would like to see ideas and subscribe to status updates, we would prefer the technical sales counterpart (more familiar with the product configuration side) submit ideas on their behalf. A read-only permission would solve for this. 

    Please support this in your Salesforce integration, too. I've noticed many portal features don't work as expected once integrated with SF.

    This is huge, and necessary for enterprise level deployments of portals.  


    Enabling the following user types would be fabulous.

    1. Create: These users have full functionality in that they can create, comment, vote on ideas.

    2. Read only: Literally that, read only.

    3. Collaborate: These users should be able comment, vote, and view. They SHOULD NOT be able to create.
