Can the webmaster please start serving pages via HTTPS?
Just a simple request. I think it makes a lot of sense (especially these days) to view pages in HTTPS in order to maintain a certain level of privacy. Given the content on this forum, I think it would be great if this was available. Any plans to do so?

Thanks!

It's been many years since I had a proper account, but I would assume logging in and out and payment are all secured. I can't see what gain there would be from making the front-end https though.

It would benefit primarily the visitors by making all exchanges confidential between client and server. If anyone was packet sniffing (tech term for eavesdropping) they wouldn't be able to see what they are reading or submitting on the forum.

Why packet sniff if they could just open up their browser and read what people are writing? Again, outside of logging and out, dealing with messaging, and payment, there is just no logical need for it in a public forum with no viewing restrictions. What is your hypothetical scenario that has you concerned?

Because clear text packets identify the IP and complete data. If the owner switched to https any packet sniffer would only see ip address and unreadable encrypted data. Yes whoever could read the site but wouldn't know who wrote it unless the owner gives it to them.

Is it really free, or do they make you pay?

suppose you read an encrypted page. suppose the page is also available unencrypted. that means that "whoever" can easily tell what you read, AND they now have a message encrypted for you and the plain text of that message as well. ie: you would have LESS security under this plan.

That's not how it works. If you use a packet monitoring solution, you will see that this is not true while HTTPS is specified in the address bar.

Also, the request was merely for users who don't want others knowing what they are viewing/posting on the forum for a variety of reasons.

No nothing was answered. Unless you are hiding something you answer a question in plane speak and without alluding to anything.

Why would a web master hide his reason for not honoring a simple request to make the site more secures for its users?

That's an interesting request to not answer and ban for.

Wouldnt you all agree?

WTF is going on is that there is a secret. Your request was a perfectly reasonable one and it is a easy addition to every ones privacy and security that would make a very big difference.

Ppl trying to paint you as a bad person or stupid for asking was a sloppy and idiotic way to handle keeping whatever this secret is.

So. now you know there is a secret.

PS. To hell with whoever said you dont know who you are dealing with. I am American and will say what I please about what I please.
