According to site information. Sorry, just thought I'd bring it up. People are becoming(or already are) wary of online security, that's all - myself included.

If your not, putting banking details or up to something dodgy, you don't need an encrypted connection, but if your paranoid about such things or using public WiFi use a vpn.

I've been using it long enough and haven't been hacked yet. But tbh for me there's nothing to hack I don't use online banking or use credit cards so nothing to be really hacked for me

Um, so what?
It's not like you're posting credit card info. As a matter of fact, the TOS (which you read when you agreed to them, right?) specifically prohibits posting any personal information.

While I'm not sure why the folks at Forum Foundry haven't added basic SSL encryption, which is pretty common now, I also can't see where it matters much for a site like this.

If you have a concern, contact the forum owners, Forum Foundry. That side of things is their business.
