Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 128 Stack Exchange communities.

On this question, user 176392 has the name dotnetworld. In their comment on this answer they have the username technorati.com/people/technorati.

The username on the comment does not match their current name. This shouldn't be a caching issue as they were last seen 8 hours ago (at time of writing).

OK; I'm confused... it is by design to show the username differently? –  Marc Gravell Sep 26 '09 at 8:05

This is only a problem, because the user hasn't specified a name in his user page. Maybe he logged in using different email accounts for the question and the comment. Not sure, if it is possible to fix that.

In addition it seems like the name is based on where they logged in from. –  ChrisF Sep 25 '09 at 11:23

I've edited the user's profile to achieve consistency - but yes, looks like a bug.

How do you know that this behaviour isn't normal and that everything else isn't the bug?! –  XMLbog Sep 25 '09 at 12:11
