I figgered. (/me narrowly misses stepping on soapbox about appropriate 
page for the user info box being the user page, not each article page,

Thank you for your opinion and your valiant attempt to protect me from 
making a page that *you* think looks like ass. Will you aid me in my 
attempt to make a page that *I* don't think looks like ass?

I'll stop with the aspect stuff, but I'd really be a happy camper to see 
the border go away.
