Don't mean to be a grammar nazi, but the terms are "scraping" and "scrape", not "scrapping" and "scrap". To "scrap" is to fight or to dispose of something metallic (as in "I took my old car for scrapping").

I just added a script to look for people by a profile picture. Don't think they will like it very much.
