# What is this name shown on comment from other poeople?

In this question Would harvesting static electricity from the atmosphere work with a kinetic flywheel? and may be others the comments are showing Timothy Caddell instead of the given Muze I go by. Why is it doing that?

It's not clear why that post is showing Timothy instead of Muze. Looking at your profile, it doesn't appear that you have had any recent name changes that could have potentially caused the user handle to be renamed in the comments. Typically, comments are static though and don't update when a user changes their name.
And given that some of the comments on that thread are from me, it's worth noting that I have no memory of addressing comments towards you as Timothy.
Is the Timothy Caddell account another account that you have used on other sites? And if so, has any action at the SE level been taken with that account? If not, then this may be something that SE has to look into.
