Fresh tab, page openend, logged on - green padlock, but jumps to partially secured when going to "View the most recent posts on the forum." and also when opening a thread.

When replying (typing message) - green padlock

Linux/Firefox

i think you'll find the "partially secured" is because "images not secure."  No problem.

All nice, but I'm wondering... WHO is posting and reading WHAT, that I cannot see, that they would want to be securely encrypted?

The forum seems to be public access - no log-in required to see posts, so what exactly is being protected? Naughty PMs?

Your username and password for a start which could lead to give someone access to information that you may have shared via pm.
