in thread Sometimes Perl is awesome: Duck Duck Go edition

seems to me there shouldn't be much difference between allowing http and https links to wikipedia ( and other allowed links )

Sorry, I was not talking about "allowed links". wp:// links to Wikipedia and ddg:// links to DuckDuckGo. [ddg://searching] links to searching.

I think ddg:// should link to http*s*://duckduckgo.com/html/ instead, though I haven't looked into it in any depth.

    I think ddg:// should link to http*s*

    I guess I'm missing the point here, by why does a publicly visible search link -- it's on PM -- need to go via a secure request?

    Who or what will it protect that is worth imposing the extra load on DDG?

    Personally I would have though encrypting the passwords here was a higher priority goal.


    With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
    "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

    The start of some sanity?

      Sometimes https is preferred because it avoids content filtering implemented in your proxy or firewall. Perhaps you want to read about "perl hacking" and your workplace blocks anything with "hack" on the page.

    I think ddg:// should link to [https]...

    Now it does.

    Thanks for applying the patch, btw.)
