    Stay out of those!

    They are traps. They gather personal information and other stuff. I have heard that the trap doesn't work on iPods/iPhones, but I never connect just to be safe. They are all around my school.

    I Don't know about you guyz, but my Public Library seems to be good, no problems yet. It's just annoying when everytime you connect you have to go through the 'Portal'.

    No, I think you are taking the "Free Public WiFi" to mean all WiFi networks^.

    There are some networks that are named specifically "Free Public WiFi" that don't work. I wasn't aware that they are traps (like Cl8rs says), though they may be.

    WiFi at a library is fine, I'm sure. So is McDonalds, and Starbucks. Just watch out for those named "Free Public WiFi" because they don't work.
