So I remember coming here in 2011 when I was curious about bitcoins, but never really done anything with it.

Today I receive an e-mail saying that a moderator deleted one of my post, so I log-in here (with my old password that was publicly leaked from yahoo ages ago) and I see 7 posts from last months that seems to be someone having a legit conversation, but that's definitively not me or anyone I know:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=41871;sa=showPosts

I just switched my password, but I'm curious why would anyone use my identity here? What good could that give them? I'm also mostly curious if there's a wallet using my e-mail address somewhere or something similar.

Thanks for any insight you can give me.

I think someone hacked your account and i think they are planning to use your account and make it  active to increase rank to use for campaign or use it to offer here in forum and scam someone. this is the purpose  of hacking your account..
To get more answer and report it to admin and go in meta section so that we know if your account was hack or not
Meta section https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=24.0
Just move it there you can see the move button below..
