Unsecured Wireless Network

Somebody close to my house is operating an unsecured wireless network, other than going from house to house and knocking on doors is there any way of letting the operator of the network know that it would be a good ideal to secure the network?

Not really, but you could join their network and join file sharing and put a document on their desktop reminding them!

Or why not rename your network SSID something like
"If your network is called xxxx and you can read this, how about turning on your security?"!!!!!!!!

That is a good one Aargh would not have thought of that myself but unless they view all availiable networks they will not see it.

Thanks for the suggestions Aargh, may give it a try. Will leave the thread open for other comments.
