    Just throwing this out there. How about adding https option for BHW? Some conversations in here are business related and sensitive so https would be a big difference. Especially in an era of constant bad news for visitor privacy.

    Lots of vulnerabilitys in some ssl providers. Its like an extra thing to gain access with. The right provider would be ok though.

    Not really. https will be almost always safer than lack of it. I dont think BHW would get some cheap, dodgy certificate but proper one.

    Why would you like to see BHW have SSL?

    For security. As mentioned, people share sensitive info in PMs and when accessing BHW from airport, public networks, cafes etc it would be nice to encrypt the connection and stay safe.
