Why do I need a separate profile/account for every subforum ?

I created a profile here and logged in. I did a search for my laptop model, and in many forum threads that I found I am not logged in, cannot post, and cannot log in with my credentials. Apparently subforums have separate user accounts. And if I want to sign up for alerts for software/driver updates, I apparently would have to create yet another account, as login there takes an email address and a password, instead of username/password, and of course the registered address and password do not work.

Why the need for a multitude of parrallel accounts ?

(And when will the change in my name take effect, I edited it several hours ago as extended characters do not seem to display correctly ?)

The question in parentheses is not an issue anymore, apparently the forum name and profile name are maintained separately.
