The part of this which has remained horrifying to me from the start is
still mostly this line:

'I propose standard adoption of WPA2 and a default password of "free"'

Perhaps next time this expert in the field writes something he could at
least choose a valid PSK, last I checked the standard had a minimum of 8
characters... Unless starbucks petitioned to have it shortened? Any
further comments from me would just be rambling in a people hating manor
to please fill it in for me.

Thanks,
