Super cool! But shouldn't we make redirects here?

Love the idea of simplyfing the URL of profiles.

But two questions!

1 - Do we need proper 301 redirects here to avoid duplicate content? I wonder how a correct redirect needs to look like. Would that be correct and smart?

RedirectMatch 301 ^/profile/(.*)$ /$1

2 - Why are @username links inside comments not redirected to this URL also: yourforum.com/@username. Instead the are redirected to the regular URL scheme yourforum.com/profile/username
