Most site use an email to identify the user so obviously, if you make a mistake, you won't receive the confirmation mail and it would create an orphan account...

Obviously, one should do much less typing error on its own name...
You're right, that must have been the reason for the second textbox, silly me. It's not like people can be expected to jot down something important in a single time. So, my bank should ask me to insert amounts twice? And should ask each accountnumber twice?

You're making stuff up here.

Even if it is possible to show the password, you would generally have 2 password box anyway.
If you can read the bloody password, then there's no need for a second textbox. It is merely there in case the characters are hidden, which has not always been the default.
