I don't whether you deserved this or if your life sucks lol. Maybe a little of both.
Comment moderated for rule-breaking.Show it anyway
Why is every one acting here as if they don't get stuff illegally?!! I'm pretty sure everyone watched a movie online or downloaded a song illegally! It's the same thing! Don't go pressing YDT unless you never done anything illegal on the Internet at least once! -_-
How does anyone's actions negate OP from deserving it? There no logic to your comment. If anyone you refer to had something happen to them because of the alleged activities, they would deserve it too. In your world if other do said activity then anyone caught for said activity should be consequence free? The world doesn't work like that.
39 and 58, I'd like to know how you can possibly compare illegally downloading a song/album/game to connecting to unprotected wifi. I personally am glad the neighbor did it, an unprotected wifi can give out way more info than a fucking song or whatever, people steal others identities by hacking into computers over a wifi server. Your comparisons make absolutely no sense to what's gone on, the OP does deserve it regardless if what other people have done in the pirating industry.
Legally here 58. I've had intellectual property stolen from me. I know how damaging it can be. Fortunately the company backed down when they were sent a letter from my lawyer. Turned out the crazy client lied to them and wanted them to use what we created and she never paid for. Just because it's common doesn't mean everyone does it. And some of the people who do even admit its wrong and they get what they deserve if they get caught. Life I'd about making choices. We all make bad choices from time to time. It's about owning up to them and accepting responsibility.
Hey. If I ever got busted downloading illegal things, I WOULD OF DESERVED IT! It would suck for me, but I'd still deserve it. Something tells me you download stuff illegally all the time. Which, I'll admit, I did used to do. I've since stopped, because jail doesn't sound good.
I download music and movies illegally. I don't think that keeps me from judging OP. I'd expect to be judged if I got caught doing it. As to whether or not OP is a criminal, OP certainly is. I am too but that's beside the point. If I get caught stealing movies or music I won't expect sympathy either. To make a long story short, YDI OP. No ifs ands or buts.
Using someone else's wifi and downloading music from a torrent is Not actually the same thing at all. People pay a monthly bill from their Internet company to have their services and not everyone is on an unlimited data plan. Maybe with an extra unauthorized person using their Internet services were making them reach their cap and therefore costing the neighbour paying his/her bill extra money when it was going over. Data usage happens when people stream, download, and play games. Yes it sucks that Op was taking a test but they deserved it for stealing the neighbours wifi. Free ride is over.
Actually your point is predicated on a misconception. You are assuming that every person that has done something illegal which btw includes jay walking or opening a letter addressed to someone else in your family think we never did anything wrong. On the contrary I would say that people whom have carefully meticulously never violated any laws nor done anything wrong are the worst judges as they have not endured the same consequences as anyone else in the world. Many people pirate movies, music, and such not because they are dicks who don't like paying for things but because entertaining their mind or eating a meal for their body is a very real choice. Many people make so little money that the bills get paid and then they go home watch paint dry, eat, sleep, go to work, repeat. Nothing is free. Very few if any forms of entertainment are free. Even TV requires a large amount of money spent and if your tv breaks and you haven't the savings to buy a new one then you are SOL. Pirating is sometimes the only way people can afford new entertainment but these people are aware that it's wrong and if they could afford to would pay for everything they take but like the thief stealing a loaf of bread to feed starving children or self there are few options. These are the people that should be judging because they can look at a situation and not jump to "you shouldn't have done that" out of some cold callous unfeeling place. These people are clearly in most parts understanding his using of his neighbor's wifi but judging it to be YDI because there are inexpensive or free, ie library, wifi options that would have been smarter to utilize when taking a timed test. Like jaywalking if you look both ways and get a ticket YLS but if you just run across and get hit by a car then YDI. Simply put it's about 1) Accepting there are consequences to your actions 2) Utilizing the most intelligent method necessary to acheive your goal and always using the legal way first until it's not an option.
@#38 All my media is bought and paid for, every song, movie, piece of software, etc. I pay for wifi. I hit YDI. That doesn't mean I feel a need to tell everyone else they have no right to do so themselves. It's a personal choice. People know the risks of getting caught when they do these things and they won't change if a person on a website tells them to. Otherwise it's a "holier than thou" thing.
#37- I don't have internet at my house. My phone has 3G which sucks where I live, and my grandparents have wifi so I use theirs. I don't have wifi (or any sort of TV besides DVDs) at my house because we're so far out in the boondocks (middle of nowhere). It's annoying, especially considering I'm in college and have a heavy course load, but I've grown up without so it's okay.
If I had to choose between two weeks of food and two weeks of internet I'd take the internet every single time. It's a lot easier to scrounge up the couple bucks it takes to eat every day or so than it is to scrounge the month's internet bill. And it's possible to use the internet to help you make some of that money.
That sucks....maybe invest in your own wifi or ask your neighbors for the password?
I used to let my neighbor use mine, but he also paid me 10 bucks a month for doing so. He was never home enough to get the use out of buying his own and I was the only one using mine. Some times things can work out. But using it without asking for the rights too, then expecting sympathy when you lose it. That just isn't going to happen.
Yeah, it's definitely a YDI. Even if he thinks 'well it's their own damn fault for not passwording it, I might as well use it because if I don't someone else will anyway' you still don't use the stolen wifi for something like a timed exam!! What if it had just broken, bad connection or something? You have no way of fixing it if you can't access it. Just all round a bad idea.
At first I thought your life sucked but then I really thought about it. Get your own bloody wifi OP, then you wouldn't have this problem. That's like me complaining that the DVD I stole is scratched and I can't watch it.
