I see that TSR is now a secure site, joining ATG. What thought has been given to making TSN a secure site?

Will making TSN a secure site protect against ad hominem?

Absolutely not, but that’s what mods are for. What is your point?

The TSN does not handle personal or financial information. We don't see a pressing need in encrypting the data between our server and y'all's browsers - which is what https do on top of what plain old http do (ie.: protection of the privacy and integrity of the exchanged data while in transit).

I agree with Hans, however, unsecured sites do offer back doors into members' emails and by proxy, their other personal information.

The 'Nook is as secure as other MyBB forums when it comes to third parties accessing user profiles, and by extension the email-address they signed up with. Unless people use the same password on the 'Nook as they do on their email (something which I strongly recommend against), that is about what they can learn from the 'Nook.

There are no unpatched back doors or exploit on the 'Nook that I'm familiar with.
