Summary0022967: Questionable display of "Access Denied" on view_user_page

E-Mail and Real Username are displayed as Access Denied on view_user_page if the user has no rights to access for it.

It's better to suppress the display of this information instead of showing "Access Denied".

TagsNo tags attached.

For the record, I do not think that such display is "questionable". It is a stating the fact that information is not displayed due to the user's insufficient permissions. I'll agree that the wording of the message could be put more nicely though.

That being said, I'm also fine with completely removing the table row.

I thought it's questionable as it would look quite curious if we would display "Access Denied" everywhere where we don't display information at the moment if users don't meet one of our *_threshold options.
e.g. assume you have set view_history_threshold, view_attachments_threshold, ... = NOBODY.

BTW, hardly a real use case, but you could not distinguish between a user who entered "Access Denied" as his real name and "Access Denied" as the message for missing access rights.
