This is the internet.
This isn't your home, your car, your wallet.
This is the internet.
Offline analogies do not work. They also make my brain hurt, please do
not use them.
Whilst "breaking a weak lock" is criminal on the internet and in real
life, it's also a hell of a lot easier to do on the internet, and a
hell of a lot harder to get caught.
The fact that something is illegal discourages no-one, the fact that
they may get caught and punushed discourages most. The amount of laws
it is possible to break by clicking a few links is insane, and only
ever enforced if a large corporation is involved. I don't know what
you expect from this rant, but i am quite concerned that someone with
a CitiGroup (a bank?!) email address is talking about credit cards
being stolen and "weak locks".

It's insane to think and criminal that anything you can get into is fair game.

Just because I have a cheap lock you can break does not make invading my home or personal property yours.  Eh gods 
man, how does this type of idiotic logic prevail,
just becasue I lost my wallet does not constitute your right to use my credit
card, atm card and personal information for your enrichment. Because you can get into
some sieve unsecured systems gives you the right to exploit or rape a persons bank account, steal their identity 
and generally destroy someone's life.

I have found a number of wallets and purses and returned them intact to the rightful
owners, as I have done with computer systems that my friends, neightbors and
clients have used with vulnerablilties or virii. Sometimes they didn't even know I helped or fixed something.  You 
know why because I respect the privacy and property of others. And if you don't, you deserve the indignation and 
the handcuffs they put on you
when they drag you down to chinatown, baby.
