Too true that it's illegal to use someone else's wireless access point:
If someone else uses your internet connection (that your responsible for) they are liable for it.
By your thought process I shouldn't leave my gun on my nightstand with a round in the chamber because if someone were to come into my home and shoot my roommate then I'd be liable for killing my roommate?
I just think some of you guys are going a bit extreme for home/network security. If you really need security you shouldn't be wireless anyway.
