looking for a blog post 'users are the problem'

I remember a blog post somewhere advocating for strong moderation, with the theme 'users are the problem.' But now I can't find it. [more inside]

Where My (MetaFilter) Homies Is At?

Is there a search-for-contacts, find-your-friends feature buried somewhere in MetaFilter? I'd love to see if any other folks that I know are MeFites, and would gladly grant the site temporary access to my GMail address book to find out... if ONLY there were a WAY to DO it!

Search Through User's Activity?

Would it be possible to have a search box on Activity subpages -- in other words, a search function that limits itself to a single user's comments or posts? [more inside]

Searching for users by email address?

I tried to gift a membership to a minor internet celebrity, but I got the message "It appears your friend already has an account, as this email address is in use". Really? That's cool -- now who is it? Can there be a way of entering in an address and getting a username back, so I can add that account to my contacts?

Is there a way to search members by location?

I swear I remember a way to find users from a specific locale- but I can't seem to conjure up a search-string that will do what I want, which is to find users in and around Munich and Berlin, Germany.

The rasion d'etre of my search is that I've found some 1500 photographs I took there 30 years ago, and I'd like some assistance in determining locations/stories.

Can You Search Profiles?

Is there a way to search profiles? I want to see if there are any members in a certain city (not near where I live, so the ones listed in my profile don't help).

Is it possible to search for users based on # of posts/comments/questions?

Is it (would it be) possible to search for users based on # of posts/comments/questions? (Based on a few earlier threads, I'm curious as to how many accounts have been set up solely to ask question(s).)

Pie for you if you help me solve this search

Apple pies to the people prepared not to scruple perversely or crumple prematurely in providing ample particulars to this disciple posting a simple problem.

Search users function?

How useful would a "Search Users" function be? You could search for a particular username, or location, or whatever. There have been times where I wondered how many people were from a particular city (or at least owned up to it in their user profile). How difficult and/or useful would something like this be?

(BTW, Matt, the copyright at the bottom of MeTa still says 2000.)
