Honestly after thinking about this some more I think there is no excuse to not have a valid SSL certificate. I will buy (and if needed configure) the SSL cert for this site, does anyone know who we need to talk to in order to make this happen?
Not saying we shouldn't use SSL but Debian doesn't have an official support forum. Debian official resources are all located at *.debian.org - although a very useful resource, forums.debian.net isn't an official Debian resource.
