I can not agree more with @Blsteinhauer88 and am honoured to be called a friend.
The topic was started because Firefox was nagging me with warnings placed over the login fields.
Privacy on an Open-source Project in a Forum was never an issue for me and from my believe does not exist in the grid anyway.
Unless we hijack this amazing project to form a group or religion to overthrow the systems in place preventing us from saving this planet, no Red Flags will be raised by the scripts reading along.
If we would dare to use the Maslow as a prove that the borders drawn on the map are ridiculous (given the fact that the earth is round an we all sit on it and have nowhere else to go) and that we get along nicely just with a little respect, then we would become a threat.
If we would form a religion they might call us Chip-Monks!
This thread has diverged to other topics, but I still feel that https is important. My concern is username password security, without encryption your login is sent in the clear and anyone able to watch the network traffic could intercept. I agree that an open source forum is not a high value target, but adding https to a site is not onerous and gives a modicum of peace of mind. Just because it is open source does not mean basic security practices should be ignored.
I’m far more concerned about that GPS, camera, and microphone in your pocket that’s potentially always tracking, watching, and listening you. The apps that are keeping your location “timeline”? All those cell phone pics with location info that get posted?
Did you know they do vehicle tracking studies (At least when I was involved in local 911 in the aughts) by querying passing cell phones? Plus there’s the guys selling your location data
Did anybody investigate if the forum software actually sends clear text passwords?
Yeah, well, maybe this really isn’t a moose posting and he’s been kracked
I would like to say thank you @bar and to all others giving suggestions and inspirations. It’s working, meaning that my Firefox is not nagging me any more. I am happy

Edit3: Not going to study discourse, a little digging reveals that there should be a , this might be Admin only.
The choice the Team made for this Forum was great
