So I registered this account about two months ago, after I deleted my previous account that was associated with my main login.

I registered this account using a different e-mail address, I made up a different user name, and I didn't even upload a picture to change my avatar, and I absolutely didn't post anything for almost two months...

I thought I was invisible, nobody can know this is me, but on May 5, 2022, this account was mysteriously merged with my main account...

I swear I didn't do the merging, so it definitely was done by a moderator, but that's impossible, since I literally posted nothing at that time, how could you possibly recognize my identity?

Can someone please clarify this issue?

    $\begingroup$ There is another logical conclusion that can be drawn from the answer: This was done by Staff (i.e. an SE employee, for presumably internal SE reasons). Cesar has provided you with a contact form to pursue this further - I recommend you follow that advice; it might save you a lot of unnecessary password changing... $\endgroup$

Moderators are not able to merge accounts, that is only done by Staff. I can see the account was merged but cannot discuss details.

Please submit a ticket through the /contact form so that we can specifically look at your account.
