I can't really find a reason why it's even here. Why can't we always check easily who we're dealing with? If anything, make it hide only 'About' tab, but not the others, especially not 'Find all content by' and 'Find all threads by'. I don't want to go into stories how it favors scammers etc., since you can still overcome it by using search engine, which is funny. But why would someone actually need or want to hide his past?
I also noticed another funny thing - in everyone's profile there's a 'Report' button which can be used to report a profile directly (rather than a specific post). However, this isn't accessaible for hidden profiles 😵 (unless directly with a link).

While we are at it why is
even a thing?

It just makes things so much harder to keep track of users that are fishy - and theres a bunch of those.
Pretty sure you could just keep track of their account ID. In your case, it would be 45313.

BahamutxD (https://otland.net/members/45313/) -> your profile. You get this ID by going to their profile.

But how are you supposed to know what was the ID of user X who was renamed to Y? Or how do you know if user Y used to have a different identity?
Anyway, the point isn't that it's impossible to track it, google is your friend. Same as for finding threads created by certain user. It just makes things more tedious and less transparent.

you need to be schizo and either write down id of every single user in existence or dig through every single snapshot on web archive

Probably. So why not just let people see user's history instead? Hopefuly it won't take 60 upvotes before we get to know :(
