weird

So, I have been a member of SOCNET since 2008. I was billdawg. Sometime ago(2013ish), I couldn't log on, couldn't reset, couldn't anything, so I basically just rejoined as billdawg24. no harm, no foul, I continued to post for the next 4 years.
Today, I can't log on, I click on forgot my password, and I get an email, with my old billdawg stats, etc, etc.
So now I am billdawg again (who hasn't posted since 2008)
Is this something my computer is doing? It's a work computer, so I'm not sure how firewalls, etc work.
I just thought this was really strange.

And I just realized, that now I can see everyone's avatars, for the whole 4 years as billdawg 24 I could not.

Well Rip Van Billdawg, you obviously have a multiple personality disorder, with one personality duct taped in the trunk since 2008 but now resurgent again. Things you should know about the last 9 years or so:

1 = We elected a black guy as POTUS and he wasn't named Jesse Jackson. No, really!
2 = A lifelong Democrat with funny hair who starred in a reality show got elected as a Republican POTUS! I'm not even kidding!
3 = Remember those wars that had lasted forever in Afghanistan and Iraq? Or when Iran and North Korea were threatening to nuke their neighbors? You could probably sleep another 9 years and things would still be the same.
4 = Remember when gay marriage, marijuana possession, being an openly practicing Marxist while an active duty army officer, revealing the identity of an intelligence operative, launching a pre-emptive foreign war without even informing Congress, or electronically spying on American citizens without a warrant were all things that could get you in serious trouble? Never mind about that now.

You forgot deserting in the face of the enemy and NOT being put in front of a firing squad...
