On the one hand this seems simple enough (does hash of password = hash of username, if yes then don't be a moron).

On the other hand this also seems like one of those "the world builds a better idiot" scenarios.

In before "it only needs to be 6 characters long but must include a number, punctuation and can't be a common word".

    usually the kind of programming that gets paid isn't the hobbyist side of it, but helps to create a portfolio of things you're able to do and for some reason HR and IT love that, lol.

    on a second thought, I will stay at Bitbucket even if they decide to scrap the GIT over HTTPS in the upcoming months. All these russian bots sure want to cause damage to dev communities. (like they did to nesdev)
