What do you think about sharing?
I already do.
May I ask you explain your answer?
The question is "
Would you like to share the internet connection with your neighbors at home?
& my answer is I already do.
Suppose it depends on if there are no restrictions on what is allowed to be accessed. I don't want to be sharing this responsibility if something my buddy does gets 'us' in trouble. Unfortunately I don't believe that is possible anymore, the days of the unrestricted internet died in the late 90s.
Hmm; I read this to mean
Would I share my ISP connection with just anyone?
Absolutely not. To me, the issues are
my ISP doesn't know "joey doe" and I get blamed for any nefarious activities from such a user, including simple porno all the way to posting terroristic threats. That's my reputation at stake and I don't need the swat team busting down the door.
identity theft. Joey just might have the skills to access private info on one of my system (only have four on the lan) and while I try to lock them down, one can never be absolutely positive you've locked all the doors. The mathematical principle is "you can never prove a negative".
As a contraindication to the above, I do share (allow) access to my lan via wifi connections when my friends come visiting.
My router segregates guests to IP addresses above x.32 and my firewalls classify these as untrustworthy system. Thus print/file sharing are blocked and I feel reasonably safe.
But yeah, I'm paranoid and try to keep the barn door closed and locked.
