When trying to sign on to the board via the Silk Browser on my Kindle Fire.  I get an "advisory" that the TRF site may not be secure.  Admins/anybody what's going on?

I've gotten that countless times for years.  I've always ignored it.

Silk Browser sucks for that reason. It always seems to stop me from going on sites ive used for years because it says "theres a possibility of hackers" or something similar

I get that too, when I'm on our Kindle Fire. Have meant to look into it but never did.

It's because we're still using software from before everything switched from "http" to "https", the "s" meaning secure. This board is harmless.

Isn't that exactly the type of response we'd except from someone really really deeply embedded within the Deep State?

How deep, you ask? Despite what your ballot said, you actually voted for ME on Nov. 3rd. Hail to the chief.

Give enough volume, I'd be fine with that. You have twice the IQ of Biden, and an infinitely higher relative score on the EQ measure than Trump.

He’s only twice the IQ of Biden? That’s revealing. ;)

I should have researched my post better.   Change it to a factor of four.
