By removing SUBSTR matching, I prevent uid searches from being used to 
learn of new uid's.  I change them into confirmation that this uid 
exists instead of tell me all the uid's that contain this pattern -- 
doesn't mean they can't still be used to glom userids but means you have 
to do a lot of searches (one for each userid you think might exist).

Thank you!  Do I get a prize for being obstinate?
