3. Some people leave their wireless open on purpose...
... but it's not always a nice purpose!

I have seen apartment buildings that offer free wireless, as a perk, and as a way to keep people from mucking about with wires.

The open connections in my own neighborhood seem to be controlled by kids.

Sure, I'll set that up, Dad!
