Firefox tells me that the connection at TMP (and Lead Adventure Forum for that matter) is not safe or private and that sensitive info given here can be viewed by others – including password.

Is this new?

If not, should we continue not to give a hoot?

It just means it's not using https, just http.

Dont panic. The North Koreans won't get you.

"Insecure site?"

I have to admit to feeling a little insecure at times. A few hits of meth, coke and fentanyl followed by a whiskey chaser get me back to my old self in no time. Party on Wayne. Party on Garth.

Jaztez, that's North Korean talk.

We all know that TMP is nothing if not 'insecure.'

I kid, I kid. Well, mostly.

don't send any sensitive info to this site. Make sure your password for this site is not used elsewhere that is important.

Is there anything on TMP that warrants a higher level of security than what "http://" provides?

Here is what Chrome has to say on the matter:

"Your connection to this site is not secure.

You should not enter any sensitive information on this site (for example, passwords or credit cards) because it could be stolen by attackers".

So don't do that.

I get that message on a few Napoleonic sites, had up one for a few days and got cut off by it saying I was hacking it or something

Actually, sending your e-mail address, or your phone number, to a fellow member, though the Private Message system, would present hackers with the opportunity to capture said information.

One of the recommended operating procedures for the internet, is to always type, "https://…" for each and every website you visit, to prevent any loss of information. Basically, the trend is to have every site offer the secure option, to make hacking that much more difficult, eliminating the amateurs. Cheers!
