Hi TapeOp folks,

I love this forum. I come here daily.

I'd really love it if the login screen, at the very least, were accessed via httpS, rather than http. I know we're all using unique passwords for every site, so this shouldn't be an issue, but once there is Firesheep....

Thanks for your consideration.

Best,
Jj

As well as being a hosting industry best practice.

"HTTPS protection [...] can protect you against eavesdropping and tampering with the contents of the site or with the information you send to the site. Ideally, this provides some protection against an attacker learning the content of the information flowing in each direction for instance, the text of e-mail messages you send or receive through a webmail site, the products you browse or purchase on an e-commerce site, or the particular articles you read on a reference site."
