in reply to Your connection is not secure

Personally, I think that it is long overdue for to follow what is obviously now "the New Normal":   an SSL-only site.   (If WikiPedia has already done it, so can we.)   A free SSL-certificate from would do nicely.   We are very-clearly "behind the cue-ball" on this . . . the expectations of the web community have changed.

    1. What's this we business? AnonymousMonks are nobody I know.
    2. This is a free, volunteerism site. Wikipedia has a SIXTY MILLION PLUS DOLLAR ANNUAL BUDGET.
    3. The site already has an SSL cert so your advice, as isAlways The cAsE, is as wrong as it is lazy.

        Oh, I know there are problems and room for improvement but as I am unwilling to personally do the work and I know that the folks who tend to already know all about it, I do not bitch about it. This is not to say it's an invalid point to raise. The OP is fine and I had already upvoted it. I was disputing the "Anonymous" Monk's ridiculous ᵖᵒˢᶦᵗᶦᵒⁿ that a multi-million dollar organization with hundreds of paid employees and 10s of thousands of regular volunteers is a valid comparison to the monastery; or with the international concerns of privacy and political retribution would be otherwise with regards to secure browsing.
