That's worse than whoever parks a bike at our building's bike rack and doesn't lock it. Not locking doesn't take effort. The guy who left his bike in the picture gets the same level of security, but does have to put in an effort.

I saw a bike "locked up" in front of my dorm sophomore year with a U-lock. They had the shackle around the bike rack, but run between the top tube and the down tube so that from the funny angle they were looking at it leaning across the bushes next to the rack, they must've genuinely thought the bike was locked up. I think blindness also played a role.

I just saw a beater in Harvard Square, parked with a chain-- around the top tube only. It like saying no body even wants this bike.
