You mean, attacks on WPS "encryption"?  Or on home networks that let
anyone in the neighborhood connect and surf at will?

Don't dismiss wifi encryption and security so quickly, just because a
bunch of people with unknown interests wrote something in some blog,
or because too many people who don't have a clue leave their networks
wide open to anyone.

I never said that wifi encryption is a replacement for other
encryptions, just that someone who cares about eavesdropping should
_also_ have her wifi encrypted.
