Lots of incoming challenges on Twitter from people who think all my sites should be converted from HTTP to HTTPS.
They make three main points:
Google is going to warn people about my site being “not secure.”
Something bad could happen to my pages in transit from a HTTP server to the user’s web browser.
It’s not hard to convert and it doesn’t cost a lot.
I think that covers it. I list them here to prove I’ve been listening and understand what they say, so hopefully someone doesn’t try to explain it to me yet again.
The second reason, something bad could happen — well lots of bad things could happen. I can’t afford to protect against all of them. I wonder if they ever think about the human being who is supposed to do the work? We have lives, and priorities, we must make choices about how we spend time.
