Why do you assume that everyone should go to the trouble of using ssh?
I don't! I'm on an RFC-1918 private network, my wife knows the root
password and the rest of the world doesn't matter! It would be a
problem for me to use SSH anyway since, if I log in remotely, I do so
from a Windows system and it does not have ssh!

google for putty.

There is a problem with assuming a given network is secure so insecure apps
can be used. One day the network will not be secure and you may not even be
aware it happened.
