I'm not sure if this is a bug or if it's intentional, but I am unable to search for a user's posts if they are banned using the "user:[USERNAME]" format in the search.

Looking for my own posts or any active users' posts seems to work fine.

Is this a bug, or is it intentional for some reason?

To be honest, I didn't think users could search for any posts by username other than their own, so I'm more disturbed if CR allows searching for other active users' posts than that you can't search for a banned user's posts.

Hmm, it seems that I cannot search for some active users' posts as well, so maybe I'm just mistaken in the belief that you can.

For example, searching for posts by YOU only brings up four results.

[My personal take is that I enjoy a very searchable system. Sometimes I want to read a quote a user had for example, but don't remember what the exact words were, and cannot find the thread it was in. It's no huge deal or anything, though.]

Well, this is what I think, it's like a suspension account. It blocks off every single activity it has done. I can pretty much understand why it would not show, I mean, it's banned for a reason and it's the same way as when users gets deleted, their account is gone so all their posts are too.
