i would like to thank those who replied to me on and
off list 

the reason i posted this is because i have been
butting heads with a local wireless ISP , it seems a
trend among several smaller wireless ISPs is to not
use WEP or WPA to get more customers per access point

so the entire town is blanketed with peoples emails
and other such things, just turning on kismet will
fill my poor little zaurus up in minutes

when i tried to make the people aware of this in the
towns they serve ...well has been a struggle 

think im on the downhill side tho ...

thanks again
