How do I directly link to a user's profile page without the user card popping up?

I'd like to directly link the username in the postbit to the user's profile page - without the user card overlay popping up - how can I do this please?

Cheers,
Shaun :D

NB: This will also come in handy with the RCBD - RecentStatus add-on - as you need to visit the profile page to add a comment, and at the moment it's a two-step process because of the user card popping up.

Two options:

1) Disable all overlays:

Admin CP -> Appearance -> Style Properties -> Overlays and Tooltips -> Enable Overlays

2) Disable that specific overlay by editing this template:

Admin CP -> Appearance -> Templates -> message_user_info

Add the red code:

Code:
<xen:if is="!{$isQuickReply}">
	<xen:hook name="message_user_info_text" params="{xen:array 'user={$user}', 'isQuickReply={$isQuickReply}'}">
		<h3 class="userText">
			<xen:username class="NoOverlay" user="$user" itemprop="name" rich="true" />
			<xen:if hascontent="true"><em class="userTitle" itemprop="title"><xen:contentcheck>{xen:helper userTitle, $user}</xen:contentcheck></em></xen:if>
			<!-- slot: message_user_info_text -->
		</h3>
	</xen:hook>
