    If you people knew what you were doing, it wouldn't be so hard to look up someone. I mean, it's not rocket science! So maybe you people should learn how to use common sense. I mean, I'm literally lost for words because I've looked up like 4 different people now and had absolutely no issues/problems using this site. So, in my opinion.. the ones that are complaining/whining like little kids are the ones that should look up "Internet for dummies". Might help you out. LOL

Just take your time and make sure you've checked the entire page for whatever your looking for.
