Why are there three shoutings?

They have different usernames. The search combs through all text on the userpage.

Yes. I see this now. I'd like to repurpose this thread as a callout of myself for the lamest bug report EVAR

There's a username search? Huh.

ObTrivia: If you pick the right search terms (like 'man'), you get results for users that don't exist like 28870.

I think more metatalk threads could do with some repurposing.

try searching for quonsar... usually there are dozens of instances that come up.

No, this is good. Otherwise I wouldn't have read Idiot Mittens's profile:

I was born in the back of an ice cream truck in southwestern Italy when I was five. My father was a diplomat. My mother, a war correspondent/Denny's waitress. I heard about this site through a young Cambodian peasant who died in my arms. She said it would give me the answers I needed. Alas, it has not, but then again the woman was quite delerious and shouting profanities at the time. My visits have proven entertaining, though, and I will continue to visit this site periodically as I make my way through Northern Thailand studying the mating habits of sexually deviant American tourists. Then again, I may just be a cubicle monkey in Toronto who tends to daydream a lot. You decide.

In lieu of covering him with honey and staking him out over an anthill, I say we go for the whipped cream and hungry kittens.

Hey, he did repurpose the thread.

Repurposing is the new black.

Pitchforks are too good for him. Make him spell check his entire posting history.

My lame search engine skillz means I just search their entire user profile for a word, and like a dunce, I display the word you searched for highlighted, instead of just the username. Lemme fix that.

Fixed!
