Site security (why no SSL)

Post by TomBar3 » Sun Oct 11, 2020 3:04 am

Hello,
Just wondering why this site isn't hosted using basic SSL encryption.
Our passwords are sent in clear making the forum potentially even more vulnerable to abuse and attacks.
Regards,
TB

There's no particularly good reason. Fixed.

Is this why I couldn't log in using my phone this morning (Australia time)?
