In conlcusion: you're wrong.
#1 thats not a link like I asked for.
#2 I don't think you have any idea what that actually says.
Edited to add, I don't think it's a good idea to connect to an unknown unsecured wireless network. It could be what they call a honey pot and someone is just waiting for you to log in and buy something with your CC so they could get your info. But I have never heard of or seen anyone actually getting into legal trouble just for connecting to their dumb neighbor's unsecured router.
It raises great moral questions, and it's tough to find a good example to compare it to. Like if your neighbor had his satillite radio on, is it wrong for you to listen? You didn't pay for it, or if your neighbor had a big screen tv watching a pay per view fight and you could see it from your window. Is it stealing for you to watch?
I don't know the answers only the questions.
