Re: So when
Is it really that important for a news site to be on HTTPS? Does anyone post sensitive information here?
Probably not, but they could post things via HTTPS that they won't if their employer can read them. I know I'm a lot more vague when posting anything that my employer could misconstrue as being related to them, and that probably applies to a lot of commentards in significantly more interesting roles than mine.
Also, shouldn't what was/is/wants to be one of the premier tech news sites on the web be demonstrating something just a little closer to best practice?
