One of your fellow TechRepublic members has sent you a private message:

From: preachjohn
Subject: Wireless Internet//Voip Gateway Access
I was troubled by your reply.
The questioner made no comment whatsoever on whether permission was granted to access the neighbor's wireless signal.
You just assumed he was trying to 'steal' the signal.
But that was not even his question at all.
It was 'how', practically, do I go about this?
You sidestepped the issue completely, raised a scarecrow and then destroyed it.
PS-- I have the same issue. My cable signal is down. I'm wireless temporarily from next door. Yes, by permission. my MagicJack works, but my VOIP doesn't.

I'm assuming this bible-basher is talking about this old, old post:

So let's all give preachjohn (who hasn't posted anything at all !!) a great big TechRepublic WELCOME.

I'll start by pointing out to this God-loving man that whether or not it is stated as being an agreement between two parties living on either side of a dividing wall, all standard ISP agreements don't legally have any agreement that 2 domiciled parties, living in separate dwellings, can share a single internet connection.

Yeah, our braindead preacher doesn't have the intelligence to realize that it is illegal to share your internet connection with anyone else.

I've been preached to by the same person (and many more) and more or less all for the same reason. He/she/it/they didn't like the way I assumed somebody was doing something they shouldn't be doing, especially since it wasn't part of the question.

I guess people like that just have to force their opinions on other people one way or another, since they don't have the guts to go stand on the corner and hold up a sign announcing their opinion to the world, primarily because deep down they're afraid they're wrong and couldn't stand the resulting flames.

Oh, I will also make a post like this, but I don't typically edit out their email.

but since I am sweet and lovable, I don't get emails like that.....
