Encryption of any kind is resource-intensive, which is why I suggested only the log in process and cookie data be encrypted.

Most of the content is text-only and I doubt anyone will bother MITM'ing our threads. The only code you'll find around here is in source code, not binary, form.

In any case, Daemon Forums is a free service that we - its users - don't own, so we shouldn't normally get any say in the final decision. </My humble opinion, naturally.>
May the source be with you!
