there are encrypted amateur radio signals which are not intended for
anyone and everyone to receive.
if you want to prevent unintended users from using a 802.11 base
station, then encrypt the signal.
if you don't want someone using it, don't send it to them. if a signal
enters their property and even their body, why can't they use it?
if essentially no effort is required to do so (for instance, a normal
configuration is for the computer to automatically lock onto a wireless
signal), what evidence do they have that it *isn't* a public network?
it is the same concept as if you don't want people nearby to hear what
you are saying, don't shout.
