I just have a curious question that comes to my mind.
Is it possible to have two members ( or users ) having the same username but different passwords.
username for user1 and user2 is "apple".
but the password for user1 is "orange" and password for user2 is "pineapple".
Is it possible??? Are they allowed to have them???
Thanks in advanced.

What would you think ? What If your JR user name(login) is same like mine, say "philip", then whose post/account/PM the JR is supposed to show ?
I thought there should be something to compare the username and password for a particular user. If there is same username, but different password, then it checks the comparsion of password and then assigned to that user.

And what will happen, if both user sets the same password.
Consider, the username:password as "key:value" pair, and there shouldn't be any duplicate key.
In most databases, the password is stored as a hashed value. No way you can compare them. If two users use the same password, their password will not appear the same in a decent database.
