How to message other users of github

Hi there, I’ll be honest and say that I found this website by mistake as I was doing a google search on an unrelated subject matter and I got a hit. It referenced an “issue” log that a user on Github had left comments on and had made mention of what I was searching for. The problem is I signed up for the free account here so I could send this user a question regarding his/her post but I see no actual way of contacting him/her…all I am allowed to do is follow the user which doesn’t really help my cause.  Please if possible can someone explain how I might contact other users on this website or do I have to plant my questions on this forum?
