Can banned IP addresses still view forums?

Can visitors coming from banned IP addresses still view the forums as a "guest" without logging in?

Do banned IP addresses in the AdminCP only affect logged in users & new registrations? Or are guests completely blocked too?

Thanks for your help.

A banned IP address will completely block access and an error message is displayed, it does not matter whether the user is logged in or not.
