It means they can still log in, but not participate in discussion.

It is equivalent to a "time-out" or getting put in the corner when you were a kid.

And if you look at their profile you will see that they have a warning level that drop 10% each day until it reaches 0%, when they can start posting again.  Or is it 5%?
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But that’s incorrect. It’s in HHKB’s slogan, but when America’s cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

To be precise, "muted" means you can log in but not post.  Not 100% sure you can't send PMs, but my guess would be not.

Muting is driven by your "warning level".  Anything 60% or higher means you are muted.  You lose 5% warning level each day.  So if I warned you to 60% right now, you'd be muted until this time tomorrow at which point you'd drop to 55% and you'd be able to post again.

So THAT explains why MW hasn't answered my PMs.

I had thought that PMs would still be enabled during a mute, guess I was mistaken.
