Really, calling it "breaking in" is a stretch. You connected a
computer to a publicly accessible computer network, where anyone can
send anything to your computer. If hacking such a system is "breaking
in," you might as well claim that shouting across your neighbor's yard
is "breaking in."
Bzzzt. Bad analogy. A better one would be noticing your neighbor's garage
door is open, walking across the street, entering the garage and rummaging
around in his belongings.
It's obvious that all analogies are bad -- the Internet is a reality
onto itself and cannot, but more importantly *should* not be compared
to the physical "3d" reality. Internet has no law of gravity for
instance, and certainly no garages.
Please, just focus on what is relevant. Perhaps even take one step
further back to determine what actually is relevant first. Stop
comparing it to arbitrary things. No one lives in a server, so it's
certainly not a house.
