    Hello,
    You really should have SSL on your site.

    I probably don't need to tell you why SSL is important but SSL or secure socket layer encrypts the sent/received data between the user and the server. With out SSL all packets sent are not encrypted and usernames/passwords can be sniffed for.

    If someone here logs in to their account on a shared network, someone can just steal cookies/other sensitive data. SSL is also good for people who are in other countries (especially the ones on tor) where the ISP captures all packets of their users and reads them.

    It seems you already have a self signed certificate setup but you should really get verified SSL :p

    AND you should force all requests to be over https, even if I use your unverified SSL it keeps putting me back on plane http.

    Thanks :)

    Wow what a great discovery. I use https only for my cloaking domains to wash away referers when needed.
