I think you all make valid points, which are nothing knew in another forum I take part in and would have stated but chrys beat me to it

At the end of the day, it cannot be stopped, which the bad people know, just mitigated after the event
I think very similar though to kitz, over having a mixed http/https for websites, and I believe the previous use of https, was ideal - https used for any login/purchase area etc, and other non essential area are fine in http. However, https takes more resources when it used but as servers are more powerful then previous, and SSL Certs are now available free, then that's why there pushing it through
@litz, I feel for you re threats, there are bad people out there, so please do not let it get to you - people seemingly think they are anonymous on the internet and laws do not apply, but they do, and there are things you can do.
I hope my post has not taken your thread off topic, as it raises many different areas involved in the thread
