Summary0000873: make find an assurer available for non login area?

This is just an idea, request for discussion.

Using the bug tracking system for an discussion is no good idea, this is what the development mailinglist is for. When this list comes to an conclusion for a feature request this should be noted in the system.

However I don't believe it is a good idea opening a channel to the spammers to send their messages to our assurers in an easier way compared to the demand for contacting an assurer without signing up to the community.

potential solution:
step 1: find user by email (user has to know his own email address)
        user email found ? No -> stop. do nothing
                             Yes -> continue step 2
step 2: user account has assurances received ?
        if count(rcvd assurances) > 0 ? No -> stop. do nothing
                                    Yes -> continue step 3
step 3: addtl test ? captcha ?
        display assurers list
