Hi. The proposition is ismple. HTTPS is already there in ReactOS website, it
would provide enhanced security over the forums too. I don't know about you
guys, but I don't get HTTPS when I enter the forums and I have to manually
specify it in the address bar. What's your view?

EDIT: I'll also add a poll.

Missing option in poll: Don't care. :)
Also, this will make warnings with non https inclusions, i.e. external images.

Hmpf. I don't really care that much neither. At least, not for sites like this.

That said, generally speaking, it's a good thing to go to https. If everyone and every site did that, it would make NSA-snooping a lil bit harder again.

But I'm a pessi..I mean, realist. There is only a slim chance the persons in charge of this will do this, laurflorin. And even if they do, it will take at least six months.
