Didn't secure your Wi-Fi? You're a terrorist!

Posted by Xavier Ashe on August 24, 2005

I was reading what I thought was another humdrum column on unsecured wi-fi.  Then it ended with a bang:

Folks, we need to get a grip here. We need to look at this issue in
the bigger picture of national security. The bigger picture means that
Smith is not guilty of anything and the owner of the unsecured Wi-Fi
connection is definitely guilty. Guilty of gross negligence and guilty
of undermining the security of our country.

The
same goes for anyone or any company that has unsecured Wi-Fi access.
That applies to all those pinko, commie coffee houses, parks and
wishy-washy liberals who just don't get it. Free Wi-Fi is a national
security risk, an open door for the fifth column. An unsecured Wi-Fi
point is simply a foothold for the enemies of freedom, and anyone who
owns an open Wi-Fi access point should be prosecuted for treason. And
hung

This has to be the most interesting take on unsecured wi-fi I have
ever heard.  I wish I had this quote for last week luncheon. 
“Foothold for the enemies of freedom”…  I am still laughing as I type this.  Send him your thoughts: backspin@gibbs.com
