Whatever you read here is public stuff anyway, since newsgroups and
their contents are public (unless of course it's a private hierarchy
or paid service for which you have to login, but that's not the case
here). And whatever you post here is public too. So I still fail to
see the added value of a secure connection.
Maybe you should post in Brazilian, which for most people is a form
of encryption. :-)
