Why not enable HTTPS?

So as it stands, anyone who who is able to intercept web-traffic (e.g. a cafe wifi for example) will be able to see users login and password in clear text.

There is no cost to adding a https certificate ([Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]
), just the time needed to configure the server to use it.

It seems to me like some time worth investing. Perhaps others agree?

I would be happy to try to do it, but as a relatively anonymous alias on the internet, I doubt you will give me the keys to the server.

Re: Why not enable HTTPS?

Yes, I get a prompt on my computer telling me that my password/log info is not protected when I log in. When I click on the message I get this [Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]


"Firefox will display a grey lock icon with a red strike-through in the address bar, when a login page you’re viewing does not have a secure connection. This is to inform you that if you enter your password it could be stolen by eavesdroppers and attackers.
Starting in Firefox version 52, you will also see a warning message when you click inside the login box to enter a username or password."

Absolutely should be done but tbh the trump emoticon was a higher priority.
