"I was just looking in that guy's house for a nice new TV. It wasn't breaking in because he left the door open." More like you were in the worlds largest library and picked up the wrong book only to be taken down by police officers. Using your theory even accessing slashdot and copy pasting this responce is breaking and entering grand theftauto, murder, whatever. Without a password, how is he supposed to know that he was entering a restricted area? Does your computer have a password? Of course it does (prolly random ascii characters 24 digits long knowing this site) Why? Because you want to keep bad people out of it. You cant just depend on wagging a finger at people in order to keep them out, and youd think that the national goverment could keep a little better reigns on security than this.
