97. There was an amnesty period
Many had taken names to do with their primary choice, many wars, many deaths....all that. There was an amensty offered after the election, you could change your name and keep your post count. For a short time there was thing at the bottom of posts of those who had changed their names, it went like this: This DUer was formerly known as "insert former name here".
