How do I whisper non-friends?

Technical Support
For example, if I wanted to whisper someone from this forum, would I have to friend request them first?

I've tried various commands such as /whisper Jman5#1656, or /w Jman5, or /whisper Jman5 #1656. Nothing seems to work. It just says "Not a valid recipient."

Also, is there any in-game profile view command if I have a player's battletag?
I have the worst luck at getting answers from a tech support thread.
I know how to whisper people youve recently been in games with

press O

go to recently played (just below friends list) and it has a list of people youve recently been in games with, thru this you can whisper them

if they have not been in your group, im unsure if it works but you can try /w (character name)

thats unlikely though because of the battletag system

avoid public games, people are getting hacked right now, you shouldnt be playing with strangers in the first place

If you shouldn't be playing with strangers, why would they even need the public game option? Why not just have "Invite _______" so you can only invite friends? Makes no sense, bro.
