The context of this is that I was looking for T.E.D. (new mod) so that I could fix his chat profile so that it is recognized by the TL bot. I couldn't find him, no matter what I searched -- finally I searched "D", sorted by reputation, found the pages where his approximate total rep would fit (unfortunately, chat rep != flair rep, and I didn't want to jQuery-calculate it), and looked through a bunch of them. I really shouldn't have to do this.
It occurs to me that if Link to chat user from profile page was implemented, this would be pretty much a non-issue. < /plug >
