Default account theft?

I just finished an Alan Rudolph quote. I just happened to notice on the side that I supposedly made a comment about that quote three years ago. The comment made no sense to me, because it implied a familiarity with this Alan Rudolph person and his politics. I never heard of him, not that I am aware or remember.

So, why was I able to call up a puzzle I supposedly had already done? And, is it possible for another user to coopt my account?

Can the sysop call up, without extreme effort, all the comments I may have made on puzzles (not very many) so I can see if someone is giving me a personality different than what it is?

Default Account theft?

I have occasionally been given puzzles that I solved years ago. I think the assignment is pretty random. I'm no expert on things technical, but I don't see how someone else could solve under your name, or why they would. Alan Rudolph is a film director, a protege of Robert Altman, whose films are not blockbusters but have a small following. As far as I know, he hasn't been outspoken about politics. Is it possible you made a comment on the spur of the moment and forgot about it?
