The user is unregistered, which you can see on their user page:

They don't really have an account, so every time browser cookies are cleared, the system forgets who they are. A bit inconvenient if you ask me; you have to type your name and email address every time, and you can't edit old questions or reply to comments or answers. But not forbidden; in particular, the accounts aren't able to vote for each other.

♦ moderators can't merge accounts anymore; that's only done by Stack Exchange staff, upon request of the user themselves.

  • Is the icon based on the user name and password? (That would explain why they're identical, which is part of what confused me. I assumed they were uniquely generated each time.)

  • ...and by "password" I mean "email address", of course. :-)
