When my dinghy is tied up to a public dock, I often lock it with a cable and lock. It's not that the defense will stop anyone who really wants my dinghy - one quick swipe with cable cutters and my dinghy is gone. But what it does do, quite effectively, is give the person interested in stealing a dinghy another choice - one that isn't locked and easier to take.

So while I'll help anyone understand how to give themselves simple types of network protection, I'm sort of happy to see others not willing to take part in it and let whatever happens, happen. The fact is, it makes me safer because it gives the would-be hacker easier choices.
