My Mundane Musings

Growing up I longed for the fast paced life of big city life and corporate America. Now I’m a stay at home mom of 4 in a small rural community! And I wouldn’t have it any other way! (At least for now).

The great debate… April 16, 2008

Filed under: life — Rebekah Sanders @ 8:01 am

So, we’re at my Gram’s. We’ve been here for a few days now. And yet the debate continues – is it REALLY stealing when you’re on an unsecured network? I mean, I just need a network to use to connect to the internet. And it’s not my fault that someone around here left their network open for anyone to use. So, is it really “stealing internet” for me to be on someone else’s network?

    No, it isn’t stealing. It’s just like parking outside of Panera and using theirs (which we’ve done). No harm done, you can’t break into their computer or anything.

    Are you feeling convicted? LOL

  2. No, it’s not stealing. If they aren’t wise enough to have it secured, then I say it’s open for anyone to use. (And I do it too sometimes like when I’m visiting a certain friend out of town – although since I have my new phone now, I can get online with it pretty much anywhere)

    Ok, so, if it is stealing to log onto an unsecured internet connection, then I guess we are stealing when we log onto restaurant, motel, and book store internets that are open and unsecured. How do you steal what is being broadcast for free? I am with CC it is not stealing, and it is not your fault they are not smart enough to secure their internet. At least you are not logging onto porno or illegal content sites. No worries.
