Any smart user can get around most silly blocks, what is so special
about this. This is the same deal used for getting around a large
majority of 'firewalls' and of course most airport hotspots and most
other places where geek people need connectivity and don't want to
bother getting a silly registration card for it or pulling their visa
card number from that text file they keep somewhere.

Nothing new there... except that maybe these things where supposed to be
really closed per default and in other cases the administrator of the
box is just not doing his job correctly as the tools provided don't
allow him to ;)
