Claiming an old account which isn't theirs

I saw this old account (3 years one month) that has many followers due to its username. It doesn't have any projects or anything; it's a namesnipe. Someone who probably didn't make the account as he/she joined years later is going around on the comments of that account saying that it's their account. Anything I should do?

It's hard to tell over the internet whether or not someone is telling the truth about account ownership. You can use the “Contact Us” link to let the ST know about it, and then we could respond the the claimer to see if the claim is true or not.

Sadly, my forum signature was eaten by an evil kumquat.

Is it profane?
