Existing users missing from wp-admin users list

Description

Occasionally, we'll have users that can't be found in wp-admin when we go to block them (this needs to be done via the user list and then the block applied as a bulk action, as we do not have Network Admin, which is required to access individual users).

The users can be found via profiles.wordpress.org/$user, /support/users/$username and the old /support/profiles/$user, but not via /wp-admin/users.php?s=tech2017.

The most recent user we've discovered like this is tech2017, the block was applied using the old bbPress 1.x profile link in the cases where we can't find the user in wp-admin, but I'm not sure if that will have an affect (the flag appears to be set as it should when comparing to profiles.wordpress.org at least)

wp-admin lists only users that have a capability (like bbp_participant) on the site. tech2017 hasn't so you can't find them.

Blocking via bbPress 1.x has no real affect beside the flag on the profiles.w.org.

Replying to ocean90:

wp-admin lists only users that have a capability (like bbp_participant) on the site. tech2017 hasn't so you can't find them.

Ah, yes, this would do it, thanks @ocean90 +1
