Hello, I've got a question regarding distinct ids and how to go about merges when one distinct id can be used by multiple actual users. In my case the Distinct_ID has historically been used to refer to the machine identifier rather than a user identifier. Let's say I got a machine M from which a User A executes some events before logging in and being identified by a unique user id. In this case all events will show up on mixpanel for "User M". The user logs in, the identify call is made and Machine M is now associated with user A. Now User B comes along and logs in on Machine M, now User B is associated with Machine M, does this now also affect events made by user A from machine M? How could I go about this to make sure I preserve all events with the correct user? How should I use identity aliases/merge to resolve this?
