YES TO HTTPS

I've been using https for quite a while, ever since I found it allowed me to access E on certain connections where the normal http was blocked due to adult content.

I've been using HTTP since I first got here.  It's working with me and I'm always on my laptop at the time.

I run through an encrypted VPN, so my privacy issues are already resolved, but since I run through an encrypted VPN, one might also infer I am generally for security.  Anything that makes it harder for governments to spy on what people do is a-okay with me.  ;D

I've somehow been using https since the server move, and all works fine, except for that new message alert not going away like someone else mentioned.

Well if it's different between the http and https versions, it should only be temporary.

Using https , traffic is encrypted. This means for example the NSA can't spy on what you post in the private area here.

But there are a few deeper advantages to it.

Namely, the name of the website you are going to does not get sent over http either. This means, if you happen to be in a particularly censorship-heavy area, using https + a hosts file entry means that would-be censors would be none the wiser about your activities here, especially if I didn't direct the ip address to the site (but obviously I can't avoid that at the moment as people are still trying to find us : / )

Also, some ISPs like to cache things over http... this causes problems. They can't do this over https because it just causes random garbage.

https is slower, yesh, though most of this is only on the first load in a given period (I've got ssl caching set to a half-hour).


Thankyou for the explaination as well . To me it does not matter ....but adding the s seems safer . Thanks for all your hard work .

No problems for me using Firefox.  I don't know if the browsers people use would make any difference, but in either case, it's fine with me.

I think that you meant to say  "the NSA can't spy on you quite as easily"   :)
