Subject: Re: [PHP] Any conflict with $_POST when 2 users concurrently
submitting the same form using POST method?

While yes $_POST is a supergloabal, even a superglobal has it's own 
scope. The scope of $_POST is to the call of the user to the web server. 
Therefor, no User A's information will not be overwritten by User B's 

Hope this helps. Let me know if you want any further clarification. This 
was just a very simplified answer.

Wow what a major security risk and headache this would be
