Hello everyone

This is something which bothers me quite a bit, and that is that this site still does not support https. This is really bad since the password when logging in will be sent in clear text over an unsafe connection (Firefox even warns about this). I know getting a SSL certificate in the past wasn't cheap, but since we have https://letsencrypt.org/ now providing free certificates, this shouldn't be a problem IMO.

Cheers

I'm fully with you on this. This is the only website I frequent that doesn't support https. It allows ISPs and potentially other individuals to track every user's activity and login data.

Agreed, was confused when I had to create an account and noticed this website is insecure.

HTTPS is free, and easy to do.
