Re: having permissions issue
Heh, that's a feature. Since the above was your 3rd post, you should have been able to view them after that post. Nice and ironic, eh?
Before three posts all accounts are still on probation (assuming nothing has changed) and that includes viewing profiles. The three posts rule was meant to vet community members and the profile lockdown was just included to keep profiles from being scraped for information.
Hope that helps, even though I'm pretty sure your problem is solved now.
