I noticed that HTTPS is enabled for these forums, but that it is using a self-signed certificate. I just wanted to point out that there is a free CA that will issue SSL/TLS certificates for a domain without requiring any payment: StartCom.
Their web site interface is horrible and it's quite difficult to get around, but I've used them in the past and the certs are good for one year. Using them (or somebody else) would alleviate users who wish to use HTTPS from being presented with a warning about a certificate that they have no way of trusting. Then again, it's possible that I'm being fooled by a middleman and that you guys do have a CA-signed certificate.
