I see you've totally skipped over the 'where does it end' questions...
I didn't think anyone would bother to answer them.
You certainly wouldn't walk around with a t-shirt that says "MY ATM CODE IS 6432" so why would you broadcast your passwords in plain text?
One takes eyes to read, and the other takes quite a bit of sophistication. One takes time, skill, talent, or money to find someone to develop, the other takes eyes and the ability to read English, or access to someone who does, but it's totally justified in your mind, so whatever.
Just remember the next time you hand your CC or a check to someone to pay a bill and don't watch them for every second you gave them much more plain, readable data than a WiFi connection does, so if something happens to it, it's definitely your fault for not taking every precaution, and I hope you don't ever misplace your wallet, because that would definitely be your fault if something got misused from your own lack of attention...
Can you imagine if it fell out of your pocket somewhere, like at a sporting event when you weren't paying attention? Don't even think about pressing charges if something like that happens and someone misuses the information, because we all know it's your fault for letting it out of your site in the first place, because you're the one who didn't take every precaution by paying attention to it every single second of the day.
See, there are steps that can be done to help prevent against being mugged.
Yeah, there are, but it still happens, so who's fault is it the person who didn't take all the precautions, or the person doing the wrong?
I'm done with this one, because it's pointless...
It's been fun.
