Can the mn mods explain to me why my user name has defaulted to an old user name I haven't used for over two years. The first I dictation. Was that some of the threads I was following had disappeared on 'I'm on'. Then I realised that the user name had changed to one I used over two,years ago. My new one came back earlier, and now my old one has returned. It has only happened in the last couple of says, since the mumsnet look has changed.

It's a bit concerning that an old account has been russureected, and not by me. Have I been hacked?

Even more worrying, I logged in with a different email account to the one listed in Account' somehow did that happen? How did the two,accounts get linked? Has it happened to anyone else?
