Actually, no. Any kind of lock is good enough to make the perp aim his pringles 
can a floor lower. Why bother?

Yes WEP CAN be easy to crack but it's still not a no-brainer and still not a 
thing most moochers would do. 

And no, putting it on Bones or CSI (or "Law and Order: The endless supply of 
Clones", or "NCIS: The Increasingly juvenile spinoffs") will help because by my 
hasty recollections ISTR it being done several times, already, on several of 
the shows.
