Submission + - Using open WiFi - stealing or not? (slashdot.org)

The Fun Guy writes: "ArsTechnica has an opinion piece on the ethics of using open WiFi hotspots. Is this stealing or not? Point "It's time to put an end to this silliness. Using an open WiFi network is no more "stealing" than is listening to the radio or watching TV using the old rabbit ears." and Counterpoint: "Really, there's only one time when you could argue that an ISP is being gypped, and that's when someone is repeatedly using his neighbor's open WiFi in lieu of paying for his own service.""
