Default Re: Account login Security change

Guess you didn't realize some people have limited bandwidth in this day and age? I only get 20GB a month max, and plenty of people still depend on dial-up because the monopolies everyone loves to support wont provide service to last mile users. I tend to get a cache hit on squid of about 8GB/month, so that's 8GB/month that I don't get docked on my monthly quota. The more websites that go to HTTPS, the fewer that can be cached on my proxy. IMO, it's stupid to think every single thing must be a secure link, because it's not truly secure. Nice to have the logon as secure, but beyond that, it's pointless.
