As Drupal ninja's we use the Drupal framework in funny ways with unintended consequences. One favorite trick is to create a content type for a list of related choices. Content creators can add/modify/delete the list of related choices via the admin interface. But Drupal puts a URL and NODE ID on every piece of content.
Well, not any longer!
Enter Internal Nodes module (https://drupal.org/project/internal_nodes). The module creates a new node permission to allow roles to view or NOT view node views. The module also allows admins to define the redirect from that content. If you just want a list of teasers without pages for each teaser, use Internal Nodes to redirect users to that view.
It just shows you that if you have a Drupal need, there is a module out there that probably does that! Nice!
