Seems to me port scanning is neither picking a lock or seeing a door hanging
wide open but more like rattling a door to see if it is unlocked. I don't
know about you, but if someone comes by my house and rattles the door to
check whether or not it's locked I'm going to assume he has bad intentions
whether he does or not and he'll need to be prepared for my response.

This is a good thread which begs further discussion.

I guess the crudest part of my question is, was Mathias picking a lock, or
did he see a door hanging wide open?
And at what point is someone going through an open door versus looking in a
window versus admiring someone's architecture from the street?
