RT Ticket #334: username case (in)sensitivity #13
Created: Tue Dec 15 19:34:48 2009
From mailinglist ...
It is my opinion that in the case of usernames, everything should be case insensitive. I mean no system is really going to deal with it's customers and say, are you LAdams, or ladams, or ladaMs. Passwords will get a boost from case sensitivity, but not usernames, that would just be confusing.
I'm all for eventually making all uses of username in perl modules lowercase first. Although #3 seems just fine to me.
