Can't answer 'why,' but that just seems to be the way it is. I've seen this on other boards, too. One guy found a gif of descending symbols in green on black ala the Matrix & placed his name on top of that & then all of a sudden it was in every post he'd ever written.

To save space -- they don't actually store anything but the subject and the text of your post with the thread (along with the usual administrative BS -- pointers, etc.) -- everything else about you is stored in a record about you (sig, avatar, etc.).
