    When is this site getting an SSL certificate? My browser is warning me that this site is not secure. Heck, if you're cheap you can get a free certificate at any number of websites. It's a no brainer.

    This site is no more UNSECURE than its ever been..... They are just trying to scare you down thier control path!!

    This is the internet..... Nothing is diferent than it ever was........ Please dont let them scare you!


    Nothing on this site needs forced SSL..


    Doing what cellar.org does is really all thats needed on a site like this.... (They have an SSL cert but they dont block HTTP sessions either)

    HTTPS would be nice so password is encrypted posting to server on login. Also sending private messages with email and mail addresses are passed in clear text to server.

    Not sure if this site uses CDN for static content or is behind load balancer, if so that is another obstacle.

    HTTPS is the standard even with its weak encryption. Firefox, IE, Safari, Chrome and everyone else require this at a minimum. AK has to be one of the few sites with medium to high volume that refuses to update and get into the 21st century. Error warnings on entering your password because of no encryption/ HTTPS is unacceptable.

    Completely wrong. This site is more unsecured than ever before.

    The internet and everything is different than ever before. What decade are you living in?


    This site needs SSL, just like everyone else. Send Amazon, Microsoft, and all the major high volume websites
    your post. Tell them they don't need SSL. Post their response publicly, hero.


    Soon, if not 90% of the time right now, all major browsers, and the minor few too, will not allow any web traffic without HTTPS/SSL. Even that is 20 years behind what is needed.

    No kidding. If someone were to hack my account, they might post music I don't like, or denigrate equipment I like, or OH NO, like a post I wouldn't!
