Changing OSM username doesn't change here

Somewhat related, when a user at osm.org renames their user account the account here doesn’t “follow” the name change, and in fact I can’t immediately see how a user here can rename their account name.

We’ve just had an example of a user contributing at osm.org under “name A”, posting here as “name A”, being blocked on osm.org due to the nature of their changes, deleting that account on osm.org, creating a new account on osm.org as “name B”, posting here as “name B”, and then renaming “name B” to “name A” at osm.org.

This isn’t a new problem; help.osm.org was the same.
