Why You Shouldn’t Share Your Internet Connection With NeighborsDecember 29th, 2011
In the linked article, Kim Komando gives several good reasons for not sharing your wireless internet connection with neighbors. An important one being that if the neighbor does anything illegal, the police arrest you and confiscate your computer equipment. (On the other hand, if you’re the one doing illegal stuff over the internet, I’ve actually heard people suggest that it’s a good idea to leave your wireless router unsecured—so there’s reasonable doubt concerning who performed the crime.)

This sounds like the ‘voice of experience’ talking in the parentheses. :)

No, it’s not. I do, however, have a friend whose computer was confiscated (and never returned) because his roommate was doing illegal stuff with it.
