Why is there is no SSL support for the forum?

Why is there no SSL support for the forum? This is basic security for any web application and it's users privacy.
My signature, something cool and "original" for everyone to admire...

Especially as the username and password is transferred over plain text on the login page, I agree this forum needs to be SSL'ed and certificates cost almost nothing these days.

https://letsencrypt.org/ issues free certificates, don't need to pay anything (but i think you need to update it often).

It is nice, the forum no longer exhibits terrible speeds in the US since the upgrade as well.

Thanks Hardkernel, that was driving me mad occasionally :)

Good catch, enabling the expiry caching feature would save them quite a bit of bandwidth over a months time.
