API endpoint that allows users to be viewed.

Genders are `{0:'unknown', 1:'male', 2:'female'}

eg http://localhost:8000/api/users/?count_questions__gte=5 to get only users who have asked at least 5 questions

people following me: http://localhost:8000/api/users/?following_users__following=1

people I follow: http://localhost:8000/api/users/?follower_users__user=1

or shorthand for the same:

people following 1: http://localhost:8000/api/users/?is_following=1

people 1 follows: http://localhost:8000/api/users/?is_followed_by=1

Custom Compare filtering & sorting:

we can filter for users who have previously been compared, with a minimum overlap, a pick a sorting method based on their cached compare

http://localhost:8000/api/users/?compare_check={{ userid }},{{ minimum_overlap }},{{ sorting_method }}

eg: http://localhost:8000/api/users/?page=1&page_size=15&compare_check=1,20,compares__difference_percent
