Just curious, but do you allow just anyone to have an account in your
MYSQL db? Generally, when building web applications, I use an
application username (something for which I have control) and if an
end-user needs access, there is a login page which uses a separate users
table that I have designed - thereby circumventing your issue.
If you look at things like blogs/bulletin boards (phpbb is a good one)
etc... you see this is how they design there login screens/db.
