Can't understand the whys and hows of such a move.

If I recall correctly, if you change your username the new username appears on your posts but the original username is still your underlying username. I suspect staxomega changed his/her username to hvbias and when the account was deleted the post labels revert to the original username, by some quirk of the site coding.

Of course, it is always to be regretted when a knowledgeable and congenial member leaves the site.

I agree.

So De Profundis, or was it Carlo Gesualdo, has disappeared without trace. I feel a bit bad about this -- he sent me long private messages, to which I may have responded in a laconic manner. If he sees this, it wasn't because I didn't appreciate him, on the contrary. It just was that I was busy.

In 2008 I asked for help identifying a cassette tape of 17th Century Spanish guitar music. It was serious for awhile as I got some suggestions from a currently missing member, Dirk Ronk. Then someone tired of the back and forth discussion of a cassette tape cover and posted a photo of Don Knotts, asking me if this was on the cassette cover, causing several of us to spew coffee on our computer screens. Some of those guys on that thread that I don't see anymore are Bogey, Sergeant Rock, Sarge, Dave MN, and of course Dirk Ronk. I miss those folks.

If there was anyone who shared his enthusiasm on this forum, it was him.
Plagued by setbacks, he was constantly guided by his love for early music.
I would applaud if he realizes there is a welcome for him on this forum.
It would be a shame if he felt ignored.....
