I'm an occasional participant and I guess a contributor to "low level of activity". Today when I logged in I was surprised it was http-only. That's how unusual it's become.

Let's Encrypt is very simple to setup, and free, so cost is no longer a consideration. And as already noted, you're paying a Google penalty for not being https.

There's really no good reason not to use https these days...http is deprecated, and BSD users are generally more technically savvy users.

Just my opinion :-)
