I Just Noticed ...

... That Discuss Cooking is NOT a secure website ... Hmmm, should I be concerned about that?
SHOULD DC be a secure site?
Maybe the DC admin team could expand on this?

No money transactions going on here. In that regard, it's not safe. No money transactions going on here.

"Secure" is a relative term. I'm sure the hosting server has safeguards in place.

Would that make DC an insecure site? We'd better talk nice and not say anything to embarrass it... And for heaven's sake, DON'T say anything about it looking like it put a few pounds on. After all, this IS a cooking forum.

Seriously, though, just checked with my IT guy, Himself. The basic difference between secure and unsecured site is that a secure site will encrypt the information while it is in transmission from the computer to the server. Doesn't make your laptop or the server any less secure than it ever was before. It's just some bug Google got up its butt to start identifying websites as such in the address bar.
