The BBC and the Guardian both published articles yesterday about the various ways people communicate with their neighbours through the naming of their wifi networks.

Apparently ‘We can hear you having sex’ appears with a degree of regularity across Britain and Ireland:

“My favourite a few years ago was ‘StopHavingSoMuchSex’,” notes K_Alva on Reddit of one network. “Ironically, it was unprotected.”

My own favourite is probably “Covet not thy neighbour’s wi-fi”. The BBC article notes however that not all interactions are confrontational:

One generously offers “Free Wifi For Neighbours”.

“Hola Neighbourinos” and “I like my neighbours” further show that networks names need not be a form of conflict.
