What is it in a profile name , and how you take it?(This thread is purely for the academic curiosity only and no offence is meant to anyone. The name mentioned or referred contextually is taken only to help illustration of the matter of discussion.)
Today, just by chance, I came to see this thread. One particular line in that thread which mentioned two names having first part same but second part different. The author claimed that the two are different persons -one male and the other female. Though the thread context was different, it caught my attention.
My curiosity made me to go for some research in the archives of ISC pages. But what I inferred from the search is that it is one and same person; only one membership and the profile name has been changed for some reason. This I say because I found that a backward search taking me to same profile.
This once again validates the guideline to address members by their profile name. In my memory, I can recall only two instances where the profile name has been changed. One is still an active member. Then there was another instance when the spouse was allowed to substitute with the membership for valid reasons.(I do not exactly recall the profile name).
