I've been around ATS for some years, and I am usually observant of this, but I do not recall ever seeing this for ATS until, well, now.
I know what it means, I have myself covered default, it's just strange to have no memory of seeing or knowing that. It is not that expensive to get
decent SSL certification. I get that anything you post publicly anywhere online is observable, and can be traced to you*, but it feels like your @ss
is hangin out in the wind with HTTP connections.
Also, the site usability has been garbage. Slow and buggy on 150 mbps.
*(unless you put the time in to really comprehend web anonymity and do it with painstaking attention to the details)
As anyone who has been around awhile, we all know there has been a huge shift in content upload. Above top politics was just not in the cards.
I was a lurker for years before I joined, and this site guided me to incredible insights on things I had no idea I was interested in.
I have not been much of a content guy, or poster, but I have been here for some of the most epic threads.
Few sights caught my interest or time like this site once did. Yeah, despite the "debunks" confirmed, or rotating shills, the jist of where we are,
has been foretold for those denying ignorance. The future we have been going into is something I seen coming for a long, long time, with much thanks
to many members over time, and thus no surprise to me.
But is ATS dying? Why no SSL?
