    It allows your browser to use HTTPS for a secure connection to the website, meaning that there is no plaintext traffic between your browser and the website which would allow someone doing a man in the middle attack or sniffing your traffic over an open wifi connection to intercept your password, etc.

    Hard to believe, I know, but she might not care for them. It may be like The Three Stooges, where women generally don't see the humor. Has something to do with women not wanting to watch of bunch of men acting like morons. Maybe it's because they see enough of this every day in real life. :p

    I understand using HTTPS for the retail side, but the forum? not so much.
