Should we kill HTTP access support on CW and make the site HTTPS-only for security?

Welp, let's stay on topic. If you want a discussion thread I can split that off, but I'll be watching it 'cause this already looks a bit nasty, can't quite put my finger on it tho.

Yeah my main issue is not when parents are protecting their kids, but rather parents that restrict their kid's activities based on personal beliefs. For example, some parents who hate technology might go as far as banning all video games from the house, disregarding what their kids might like the most, and then, there are families like this: http://www.torontosun.com/2013/08/31/guelph-family-lives-like-its-1986 . There are even parents who will restrict certain of their kids activities based on religious beliefs. And it's not just with video games. SirCmpwn was 17, yet was not even allowed to use his own car without his parents' permissions (which he rarely got).

That sucks. D: ANyway blame Streetwalrus :P

Haha yea XD
Well I am just kidding, but on some of my devices I still quite dislike the forced switch to HTTPS :P
For all you nostalgic people, my website HTTP://bmuessig.eu/ will always stay SSL-free XD

I totally had to. This DVB-C receiver I bought new, old stock just needed to be let free on the modern internet. It's just 10 years out of date XD

Butbutbut... it's @Juju's fault. :'(
b-b-but

Well, the thing is, we actually aren't forcing HTTPS. You're actually on normal HTTP and you can safely ignore that popup as we probably embedded some https images on the main page for some reason. Anyway, old browsers will have an outdated bundle of certificates and thus won't recognize newer certificates signed with root certificates that didn't existed yet when that browser and OS was compiled.

Not to mention we only allow modern crypto so it probably won't work, certificate or not.

What a sad move. RIP IE5  :'(

As juju said, regular http works for browsers that don't support modern crypto.
