If someone is using an open wifi without any security, plain text passwords, no VPN or SSL, then they don't give two red cents about privacy or security and have no room to complain.
That's not a really honest or fair assessment of the situation. Many computers users who set up home networks don't have the technical skill or IT background to setup up WEP/WPA. I am pretty sure if you asked most users they would prefer that their internet connection is secure. But, I am afraid many did not know it was an issue or how to actually set it up.
Just because I leave my window shades open, it does not give you permission to be a peeping tom. "You did not put up blinds, so you have no room to complain that photographed your children."
It is scary that violation of privacy is accepted as long as those Adsense checks keep coming. Where does one draw the line?
