Is it possible that the document is created by a user which is not being displayed in Database ACL list? What does the 'All readers and Above' means. Does this implies all users have reading access to that document? Suppose 'Mr. x' create a document 'DocY'. Now 'Mr. x' is no longer exist in ACL. Can 'Mr.X' still be a reader of that document?

If the Default access to the db in the ACL is "No Access", nobody accept people (and groups) listed in ACL can access the database.

"All readers and above" means that the document can be accessed by people who in the ACL has Reader or higher level of access.

Advice:
If you have a person that has left the firm (or similar) and you want to deny him access to the server, create "Deny access group" in Names.nsf and add him there.

Roles are not used for that. They function on the database level, not server.
