Here's what happened as I interpret it. (Some parts of this are
extrapolation, without having personally seen some of the evidence, but
it seems like the best fit for the observed events I do know of.)

Curt had previously seen Miles Fidelman posting in one style, presumably
a calm, friendly, tolerant sort of one.

Then Miles Fidelman made a post which Curt interpreted as being in a
more abrasive, hostile, or otherwise negative style.

Curt asked about two possible hypothetical explanations for this
perceived change of tone: a "personality transplant", or a displaced
reaction to some traumatic event, such as the death of a (presumably
beloved) pet.

When questioned about what he meant by this question, Curt explained the
question (perhaps poorly) by making a reference to Dr. Jekyll and Mr.
Hyde, using the names of Miles Fidelman.

Then people promptly started expressing confusion over the whole thing,
and here we are.
