This person is an idiot! Activation Lock was one of Apple's better additions to iOS because it greatly reduces the value of a stolen device. It could be improved, but mainly in the form of helping police track down stolen devices by requiring the passcode to power off a device, or allowing the device to connect to any available hotspot or wireless network to share its location.

Just because a few people sold a device and forgot to unlock it, or a few people forgot their pass codes, doesn't justify removing a feature that protects your data and reduces the value of your stolen device. I got a phone back a year after it was stolen because the thief couldn't use it.
