Why can guests view their own profile?

(1/1)

shentino:
I was just exploring in the general permissions area for the "guest" group and found an option to allow or disallow viewing of their own profile.

I didn't even know a guest HAD a profile...

Could someone explain what this option prevents or permits?  I'm confused...

aldo:
I am not completely sure, but probably if you allow them to post, they can see the posts from there IP or something of that nature...

青山 素子:
Guests don't actually have a profile, so that option doesn't have any effect.

That's what I was thinking.

If the option doesn't have any effect, why is it even there in the first place?

Oldiesmann:
Probably because someone forgot to add that permission to the list of permissions that guests can't have (yes, there is such a list).
