TEST ENTRY In “Site Feedback”! EDIT: That Entry went okay.

EDIT#2:The above Post and this one OPENED okay from the “Site Feedback” Menu.

EDIT #3: I just tried 6 Entries from the “Site Feedback” Menu. They all worked OKAY!

Go Figure!

Don’t waste your time Replying to this Unless You MIGHT Think YOU know what’s going on, or if it’s happened to YOU

Thanks: Rick S.

Rick: It happened to me again last night, while in the forum section. I just left the site. I do not know why it happens.

Thanks Tim. I have no idea why it’s happening either but the fact that it’s happened to BOTH of Us tells me it’s NOT Our Computers! Unless WE both have the same program loaded that’s causing this thing’

It still shows in the URL Bar that Lumberjocks is “Not Secure”. So we are back to this HTTP has not been changed to “HTTPS”. by “The Powers That Be!!”

It shows at this moment as below.

  • *

I don’t know what the Big Deal Is! Another Forum Topic showed how simple it was to do that change.

Your Guess is as good as mine as to why they don’t change it. BUT! It’s a Pain In The Gluteus Maximus!

I’m gonna start “leaving the site” also, when and if happens again!

Enough Is Enough!!!

As Jim McLain said in the Feedback Forum on the same Topic mentioned Elsewhere (Now Closed but The Link Is Shown Below and It’s Post #40). Jim Obviously Knows a LOT about this situation and Much More!

” So, the problem here at Lumber Jocks is not the difficulty or the time involvement. It’s not even on Cricket; he/she is just the forum admin, not necessarily the server technician. The problem lies with the owner of the site, Vertical Scope, Inc. It’s a bigl conglomerate that owns many, many forums and their main focus is on ad revenue. They haven’t figured out yet that their ad revenue will improve exponentially when they switch to HTTPS. But at the moment, they are too busy buying & selling forums (they tried to buy my forum once) and managing advertising to be bothered with converting every website to HTTPS”

Thanks Jim, for this Part of your In Depth Analysis! Located Here http://lumberjocks.com/topics/283345

I think it may be a function of your viruse or firewall protection. I know on my computer I got new update from “Bitdefenders” (my firewall and virus protection company). Since that update I now get a warning when I log in here.

I have figured out the warning is just telling me the site isn’t a secure connection. Just like it’s been for years. I now just ignore the warning and carry on. There is in my opinion on reason to worry unless your password on this site is used on other sties that really need to be secure like a bank.
Anyway I’m not worrying about it any longer.

Thanks for your Comments AG.

You CAN’T Ignore the “Deceptive Site” Warning and just “Move On.” It stops you from going any further and you can only, as they say go “Back To Safety” the original Site that put up the Warning in the first place. You have to go to a different Posting.

Your Absolutely Fight “Not To Worry About It Anymore.” it’s just a Glitch in the Site, not something that prevents you from USING The Site!

Y’all Have A great One!”

P.S.We got SNOW Way Down Here Today. Time for the Snow Tires I Guess!

I see, mine give me a choice to go back to safety or go ahead, I can also “white List” the site and the warning goes away in the future.

OH! Those are Good Options! I think it’s Google that sets that Warning Sign Up. I use Avast as my Anti Virus.

Maybe something here may help. You are using chrome if I remember.

Most likely, this is a way of Google saying, we want to own you and how you browse the internet. Abide by our rules…or else.

I know the sites are safe sites so I just ignore their warning when it’s happened the few times I had to use Chrome to test a new website on.

And too, I do not use Chrome and will not use Chrome for any other reason than to test in. I use Seamonkey and everyone else in our office does. Seamonkey is maintained by Mozilla that maintains Firefox and we never get those punked out Google warnings. If anyone in our office has had one of those warnings in Seamonkey they’ve not mentioned it to us.

Google is also demanding that every website have a SSL certificate on it so that could be some of the problems if you try to visit a site and it doesn’t have SSL on it.

Use your own mind though as how you want to handle it when you get one of those warnings.

Thanks for those directions Bruce! I use Chrome as my Browser. I think GOOGLE wants to operate the entire WWW. Do i their way….. or not at all.

Try installing DuckDuckGo and using it as your search engine instead of google. Also I would uncheck that send all my information to google box.

Thanks Diver. I think I’ll keep Google. Never seen that “send to Google Box.”
