What is the difference between "in comparison to" and "in comparison with"? Is there any difference in their meanings or usage? Kindly, explain with a couple of examples.

I'm surprised that, after 380 posts, you haven't noticed how the forum works. You do the research first. You look up the phrases in dictionaries and online and learn as much as you can about them. Then you post example sentences using them and we comment on them!

I logged in after a long time and I can't find my 380 posts. Kindly help me in this regard as well. How can I see my previous threads?

Secondly, "In connection with", and "in connection to" seem similar in meaning but different in usage to me and I am being a bit confused. I am not a native speaker so the experts on this forum can explain better.

Click on "Quick Links" in the toolbar along the top (next to Private Messages) then choose "My Threads". That will show you all the threads you have started. However, you don't need to see your previous threads in order to follow my suggestions. Even though you're confused about those two phrases, we still require you to include them in complete sentences before we help.

I changed my password. but still when I click my threads the same message appears, I thought changing my password would solve the problem, so I changed it twice, but the same message keeps appearing and on the contrary my profile says I have posted 380 messages and I wonder where those 380 messages are.
