      Description

      When viewing a forum we display the list of discussions in a table. One of the columns is "Started by" which shows the name of the user that started the discussion. The name currently links to the user's profile page.

      We should remove the link to the profile page because user's are confusing it for a link to the discussion itself. Instead it should just print the author's name in text.
