What would you have done?

Moved along quitely
Continued legally accessing the public network
Continued using your laptop within range of the network
Started a revolution
Total votes: 19

http://akma.disseminary.org/archives/001518.html is the story of a blogger who was told that he could not use him laptop within range of a public Wifi network. Personally I would have told the officier to kiss it. If I can't use my private items in a legal manner in public, what can I do in this country?

using laptop in public: perfectly legal.
burden of proof of wrongdoing: on the officer.
number of revolutions started by arkasha: 0. ...yet.

What I would have done was tried to get some answers from the next higher up cop. Chief of Police in that area probably. If no results there then you keep working your way up the tree. 99 times out of 100 the problem will get fixed without having to make a fuss over it. But the second it doesn't, that's when you start your revolution. Starts with using your laptop, and spreads to all the other forms of speech freedom that are being destroyed day by day.

what the officer cannot see, won't hurt him.

buy a larger antenna and let the officer go home and live out a normal, seemingly happy existance in ignorance.

but seriously, any new technology that is notorious for wrong-doing [ a large misconception in my eyes] will be persecuted and is subject to high scrutiny.

we can only be the better people and take all such acts as ignorance.
