    Is unauthorized use of the walmart intercom actually illegal? There are a bunch of vids on youtube about random people just using it to make stupid announcements over the intercom. Ive heard its illegal, and ive heard it isnt. Anyone know the answer?

    I don't see what is illegal about it... Public obscenity, indecency & profanity is illegal. But if you just want to memorize their digits #1661 for example and use it to tell the shoppers that Hannah Montana's clothing (and most wal-mart clothing) is made by children younger then her...I think thats fine and decent.

    The gas station person could've just meant that there was no Safeway nearby, not that there wasn't any at all.
