Ok, I'm calling a class and set the following values.

UserKey v1 = new UserKey("John Doe", "JDOE");
UserKey v2 = new UserKey("John Doe", "JDOE");

The results when printing should be as follows
System.Console.WriteLine( v1.Equals(v1) ); // prints true
System.Console.WriteLine( v1.Equals(v2) ); // prints true

However, System.Console.WriteLine( v1.Equals(v2) ); PRINTS FALSE not TRUE.j

Why is this the case when both v1 and v2 have the same value?
