Given Jeff's post here http://www.codinghorror.com/blog/archives/000817.html, which type of user id was used in the site.

I presume it was int, as it is used in the URL, and as far as I can see there is not the need to use GUID, as the benefits in the above are for distributed disconnected systems, it seems to me.
