        First they have to catch you.

        This has been discussed at length in another (heated) thread but just quickly: Unsecured wireless is fair game as far as I'm concerned. People who don't secure their network have no one else to blame but themselves. It's like having sex with your missus with the curtains open and then complaining that the neighbours could see you.

          if you don't get caught it isn't illegal. Just like speeding and burnouts.

                  Yeah, pretty much how I feel about it.

                  PS: please open your curtains more often.

                      If you were to steal my wireless, i'd probably catch you



                      But, my shit is locked up, so yeah....


                      I'd say the odds of getting caught are pretty minimal. People with insecure wireless are either:

                      - clueless (hence, no catching you)
                      OR
                      - deliberately leaving it open (they don't mind you using it)


                      Then again, if you're leeching huge amounts of shit off them, don't be surprised if they get educated when they keep hitting their cap while on holiday, etc.

                            see above bit about user hitting cap and getting educated


                            if you're going to leech, i'd be trying not to abuse it too bad...


                            also, remember: if you're associating with their router, and you have open shares, check your email (which they can snoop as it goes past), a pc name of your real name, etc - it wouldn't be too hard for the savvy user on the other end to determine who you are

                              or they just want to lure you into a false sense of security and then mess with you
