    I believed that only board members could view other members profiles....yet tonight there were five guests doing this.....is this possible?

    Nope, they can't do it. You can try it yourself: log out, then click on someone's profile link. You'll get a "you aren't permitted to do that" error page.

    If you're seeing multiple guests trying to view profiles at once, what you are probably witnessing is a search engine spider (google, yahoo, etc) crawling over the website and indexing all pages. They way it does this is by trying to visit every link it finds. It hits the profile page, and gets the "error" page I mentioned above.
