Wait, the Scratch Team has changed a user's username before?!

A few minutes ago I found another “Can I change my username?” question.
Well, I found something that I didn't know about;
Citation.

They've changed usernames before, but only in severe cases (such as using your real name).

Is this true? I thought that accounts with usernames against the CG were deleted instead..? But I guess the ST can change a username?
How many times has this happened?

TL;DR Is it true that the Scratch Team can change inappropriate usernames?

lh70 / nora/tobi / she-they pronouns / pansexual-demisexual / 14 / sagittarius / furry / artist / intp / stop-motion films / lbp / fall out boy / panic! at the disco / twenty one pilots / stranger things / a series of unfortunate events

They don't actually “change” the username in those cases. They move everything to a new account and delete the old one. Of course, you can do that yourself, but only ST can do it and keep the views, favs, and loves on it.
