Edit: I might be thinking of a different scenario. I found just such an occurrence in the Edit Post thread, and notice that hovering over the (broken) avatar shows a tooltip of the username plus (Banned) after it.
What I'm talking about is where you go to someone's profile page and you can see the number of discussions and replies they've made, but if you click on their discussions you get the "You do not have access... " message. They are definitely current posters.
(Apologies for delay replying but I'd forgotten I'd started this thread!!!)
They have restricted their profile, so other users can't see it.
If you mean by another mechanism then I couldn't see any such obvious option in my own profile pages.
There are a number of reasons why a user's post count may not match the number of threads/replies available to view via their profile, as some of the forum's background administrative functions rely on the creation of threads and posts.
Please provide an update as to WHY this is happening
In said poster's profile I could see that they had (allegedly) started 3 discussions - clicking the Discussions link in their profile yielded the above-noted message. I cannot see how admin functions would cause that message to be shown ... if posts had been deleted (or hidden for report assessment) then I would have expected to see that they had created No threads, not that "error" message.
Sounds like yet another weird foible of this forum platform 🙄
