“Gentlebeings™, puh-leeuze!”   This is rather embarrassing.

No matter what a handful of you seem to think about me, or for that matter about your oh-so precious website that has not received a single cosmetic face-lift in a decade, what the OP and I am describing, is a trivially-simple thing.   (If WikiPedia can do it, so can you.)

Today, all web-sites are expected to be https.   (Yes, my own web-site presently “sucks large” too, but this is about to change and in any case it is beside the point.)   Certificates are now free, and the necessary changes to nginix or Apache should take all of about twenty minutes.   It would take much less time to implement the change than to further discuss it.

    So, your point seems to be that you took the time you could have fixed your site to repeat three times that since a site with paid developers and a budget edging up on a hundred million dollars a year can do it, PerlMonks with free hosting and purely volunteer devs should drop everything to do the same. And your manifold inability to do what you constantly coach others is easy is not beside the point at all.

    All web-sites? ALL? You're lowering the bar SO LOW to proving you wrong. You really must go back to being so vague that anyone who doesn't know you might give enough benefit of the doubt to interpret your generic horseshite as accurate since the reader actually knows what she's doing and reads into what you never actually wrote.

    Parting shot: 30 is not a "handful" in any dictionary in any language in the history of the world.

    Certificates are now free

    Free as in free lunch? So is the cheese in a mousetrap.
