Yeah, that’s a good feature request. We plan to add that at some point in the not-too-distant future (we’ve got a pretty full plate right now).

In the meantime, you can search google starting with “ ” and you should get decent results.

It’s a comin’! It’s a comin’! Are you talking about find user by name, or find all posts by user?

I think both would be very useful, but I was referring to searching for a specific user. Also, by allowing people to send questions they have posted to a list of specific users it might allow them to tailor what sort of answers they receive (while still posting them for all); especially when the number of daily questions in your topic area increases to where browsing through all of them would take too much time. This would allow users to find and create their own lists of experts, and could increase their chances of getting a valid answer to questions that are very specialized. It could be extremely useful for scholarly or technical questions.
