Sites without HTTPS are potentially vulnerable to information leaks. It comes down to a question of trust. How much do you trust ATS and the
sponsors/ad companies this site is sharing data with. Because they have things like your IP address, your username, the password you use for this
site, and potentially other personally identifiable information you store in your browser.
Without SSL/TLS and HTTPS that data is sent in clear form and will be sent to anyone ATS decides they want to share it with.
Back in the day I'm sure Mark and Simon and the gang had the best intentions for this place. Nowadays I don't trust any of them, or what they're
doing with user data. Data is worth more than gold, literally. How do you think these guys pay the bills?
