A user's profile should not be accessible to guests. A person should be registered with this website in order to view someone's profile here (as observed everywhere else).

I can't really speak for everywhere else, but I can tell you that the default behavior of the version of vBulletin we use is to allow guests access to user profiles. However, this is something that's easy to change via the AdminCP, and is something we will discuss and consider. (Yes)

After some discussion, we have decided that rather than alter user permissions to direct guests to the "No Permission" page, we have opted to instead eliminate the middle step and simply redirect guests to the registration page when clicking on user profiles. :D
