Why do some people have two usernames. For example... they ask a question as A. Then they comment on your answer as B.?

Update:

If you click on avatar B, the profile shows up as A. What's going on?

    I believe it mostly happens when the user recently changed their username. It seems to take about 2-3 days for everything to start showing the same.

    Good Question I think its Likely Due to they may have Changed there Name sometimes the new Name does not get Reflected Right away sometimes it takes a Few Days for it to Take Effect Everywhere on the Site

    It happens when you change your avatar/user name. There is a time delay in the change for questions/answers etc for which shows (new one, old one) and should correct itself after a while.

    Yahoo does not allow users who post questions and answers under the anonymous feature, to post comments under the anonymous feature.
