Thankfully I never reuse passwords. The same can't be said for most people.

Please take care of this. There are free options. If you aren't familiar with the process, this is a good resource: https://www.troyhunt.com/the-6-step-happy-path-to-https/

  • I see your point. Unfortunately, the forum is hosted, so SSL is not free. It requires a plan upgrade, at a cost of $599 per month.
  • Ouch!

    If they aren't willing to be competitive with the market, do you have an exit strategy?
  • Yes, there are alternatives. One option is to use GitHub's issue tracking system. The catch is that there's no migration path, so it would mean a reset with users and discussions.
  • GitHub would be quite a popular choice with me, but you'd understandably not look forward to resetting. Maybe ask the forum users here for alternatives?
