It may not be much of a concern for those who’ve never been hacked – yet – but the Chrome warning was valid & the potential risk real, so I’m curious why some just ignored it & used another browser to get onto the site. Do the same with traffic lights huh? But it looks like the majority did take heed, I’ve never seen such a low Visitor count as there is right now – 110...just don’t tell the advertisers.
Well as someone who FULLY understands how the Internet works I can say without question there is not a high degree of 'risk' using this type of site via normal (non-secure) http or via a secure https connection whose certificate can't be validated. After all using a secure connection simply means the data is being encrypted when sent between the sever and your client. Other than logging in, there is little you do on this site that could be considered highly private. You aren't sharing sensitive bank info, or the like, so no... it's not really that huge a deal.
And people don't get 'hacked' by visiting a site that isn't secure. They get hacked by installing malicious .exe files on their system or sometimes via malicious malware (which can happen on either a secure site or not if it's been infected).
