    Cool Sharing WIFI with neighbors

    How do you kids feel about it? I'm "friends" with a few neighbors in my complex, and they all hit me up for my WIFI password because they are broke. They don't mention splitting the bill, or helping me out in any way. Every time one of them asks I avoid answering. One of them I flat out said no to, but he still asks. Am I being a dick?

    Tell them the password....then change it. They could do criminal activities & it would be traced back to YOU. It's not worth the risk.

    Tell them no and assure them the next time they ask you will stab them in the face with a boxcutter.

    Change the name of your wi-fi network to "FUCK OFF YOU CHEAP FUCKS" - that might do the trick.

    Doesn't matter if it's your line federal and most state laws declare the owner of the service is partly to blame. You won't get charged with the crime, but you will get charged with a lesser offense like criminal negligence.

    I'll find the article but recently someone was busted for kiddie porn and the people who owned the line and didn't put a password on their router got charged with a misdemeanor of sorts.

    Most times whatever that person who owned the line is charged with is thrown out of court, but the point is to never share your internet with anybody you don't know. It also steals bandwidth from you I don't know why you'd take the risk.

    Not to mention if someone like me was on an open network I could easily get into any computer sharing the router. Ask my mom's second husband about how he got caught doing things he shouldn't have been doing.

    Just stupid all around. Don't do it.

    Turn off your SSID broadcasting on your router and they wont see your network anymore.

    If you want to be held responsible for the criminal activities of your neighbors, then feel free. Otherwise, it is perfectly acceptable to tell them to FUCK OFF.

    No Way! Why let them surf the internet for free on your dime? Leeches! It reminds me of my sister coming to my house with a portable disk drive, and wanting to hook it up to my iTunes so she could download all the music I just bought. WTF! You are an adult, buy your own effing music. Pay for your own effing WIFI.

    I was asking if we really needed to be told what seemed to me to be an obvious fact and the whole point of my post to begin with.

    Borrowing one CD or asking a friend to burn you one CD is different than someone just assuming they can pilfer your entire music collection. It would be like if someone took all of your CD's home to burn. It's presumptive.

    Yeah, why would you not want to share your music with your friends/family?
