Kind of a Thread about a thread.

I'm using mobile app... I don't understand why people name change?
Can you click on the name and see previous threads or something?
How do people know if someone if a first time user or if they are a troll?

Just curious really...

Yes, you do advanced search on your username.

This shows all threads created by you or where you have replied

People usually check previous threads to see if a poster is genuine or if an op refers to their previous threads. posters name change because they want to stay anonymous and some newspapers publish threads instead of employing talented and imaginative staff.
