    I did try that and the condom broke. The reason I was paranoid is because I have had my network hacked. I realize any information you put on a public forum is then forever public information.

    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    Using plain HTTP means that your password is transmitted over the network in plain text. The only consequence of this is that someone who controls a router between you and TN could discover your password and impersonate you on this site. If you're using the same password elsewhere... don't do that! You should never reuse passwords even on HTTPS sites.

    Why pay $100 a year for a secure site when you don't need it.
    Yep, Hillary felt the same way.

    You are indeed being paranoid. About all that an HTTPS URL would do is to encrypt your password so it isn't transmitted as plain text over the Internet. That is not something I am terribly concerned about when accessing a metal detecting forum, since everything you post on this forum is already readable to anyone else.

    Those three websites you mentioned (or, actually, linked to) are hardly the only HTTPS sites out there, though. If your bank and your doctor's office's portal are not HTTPS, you'd better get worried about that.

    If you are still concerned about it, consider using the HTTPS Everywhere browser add-on: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTTPS_Everywhere

    I don't think privacy concerns since before the age of the internet is even an issue anymore. About 35 years ago when the internet was starting to explode, I went into a local PayLess drug store to buy a fishing license. The guy selling the license asked my phone number. When I gave it to him he entered it. I was standing where I could see the screen... all kinds of information about me popped up on the screen. It was then that I concluded that in this electronic age we didn't have any real privacy and never will have again. There is no reason to worry about it because there is more information about each of us out there than you would believe! And when you consider all the large supposedly "secure" sites that are always being hacked there really is NO privacy. No sense in worry about a "unsecure" site like T-Net.

    The web site is for the most part free and we do not have any banking information on anyone or sell anything. The only thing one could gain would be your post and we all can read what you post anyway. I had wondered about it as well.
