Demaestro says, "It doesn't matter to me how many understand. I am over hand holding people who want to use technology but have no interest in taking a day or two to learn how to use it."
You logic is correct. There's a warning given to users that Wi-fi should be secured to ensure privacy. But there's too much cynicism and a whole lot of caveat emptor in your argument. We are still talking about the average consumer.
This is also perhaps a typical case of technology outpacing the law.
I'm sure you approve of laws such as consumer food labelling laws, truth in lending, Fair Credit Reporting Act, etc. This is all stuff people should know, right? It's all in writing when they sign the loan, get a credit card, etc.
All these laws are based upon protecting people from well, yeah, what they should know (it's all there in writing! Read it!)
