Implemented Always show media even when member profile is set to private or banned.

With banned members 'media/users' and 'media/users/*/albums' pages are not visible. Not showing profile is normal for banned users but not showing media is a waste of space and also link juice form incomming links.

The same for when member profiles are set to private for everyone. Keeping the privacy setting seperate (like for media/albums) would be prefered because of same reason as above.

Also even when a user has 0 albums the 'media/users/*/albums' link is still visible on a media page. Google does crawl these and is a waste of crawl budget (not a problem on xf2!). Not showing the link would be prefered (or nofollow).

That’s how it works in XFMG2 now but there’s no plans to back port that to XFMG1 unfortunately.
