    meh i was just messing aounrd as a guest to see how that guest block script workd an guess what i found a way around it which should probaly be fixed

    all ya hafta do is to go to a user's profile (in whatever way ya wish) then click on Find member's topics or Find member's posts there ya have it if ya click on the title of the topic you'll be taken there thus enable you to read it (sure its inconvinient but it works)

    edited: opps typo in the topic title could a mod mind fixing that to block instead of blcok

    Just went and checked it out as a guest. Sure, it shows all the member's posts but only from the GBATemp Magazine News forum where the guests are allowed to view. Trying to view the member's topics from their profile won't work thought.
    The guest block script seems to work just fine so I don't think there's anything that need fixing.

    Seriously though, who's going to go to all that trouble just to read the forum posts without signing up?
