This not a banking site,there is NO sensitive data here (Financial,etc) .... Why the need to force HTTPS for no bloody reason?? (Just causes connection problems on some browsers)

Sites that use HTTPS for no reason only benefit those who wanna track people....(Google,etc)

Having HTTPS is ok but forcing it IS NOT NEEDED ON A SITE LIKE THIS

It's happening everywhere now, another string in the bow of the legitimate site to reduce the chances of hacking.

When we have state sponsored hacking by spy agencies who may use a co-hosed site to hack into a more sensitive site on the same server or at the same data centre, nothing is too much to impeded the hacker.

Sorry, but the security of the users comes before someones preference for using insecure, badly written browsers. Save nostalgia for true greats. IE.x is not one of those.

But what info are we trying to secure here??

No sensitive data is being sent,etc...........

And now no one on 95/98/ME is gonna be able to get to those bases mate (Well unless they still have ways to get here)

You should look into 'no browser left behind',then anyone can get here (Like davidicke)

Im not trying to make ya mad Mishy,your a good friend and I wouldnt wanna make ya mad at me.....

The sensitive data involves sending anything over http such as usernames and passwords. If you don't understand why that is an issue I suggest you look at the HTTP specification.

I'm not going to get started on David Icke.

unless it is affecting your usage of cth, I don't see what the problem is. since there is a chance so many members here uses the same user names and passwords on other sites it is good. if david idiot or whatever the last name is want to run unsecured websites, that is his choice.

if it causes connection problems on some browsers, it tells you how unsecured those browsers are. I have yet to run into connection problems with any https sites with the different browsers I use whether on a linux, windows or android device.

No disrespect, but honestly... 15-23 years is plenty of time to move ahead.
