Shown user name != real user name

Description

When it comes to white spaces the website seems to strip some of them if they occur more then once in a row in a user name. I stumbled over this by incident as I copied the name of a user from the website (not from the URL) and did not get any search results as I searched for the copied user name.

This is a basic feature of HTML surely - the browser will collapse multiple spaces when rendering.

These days, browsers show the additional spaces as %20:
