Hi all,

I'm wondering what everyone thinks - should user account pages, (e.g. a
registration page, or change password page) be secured.

Would you refuse to login to a site where the login form wasn't secure?
Would you refuse to sign a e-petition that asked for your contact details
if the form wasn't secure?

Or can you get away with only credit card form submissions being encrypted
and not other forms?

Are there any links to articles online that have any evidence or opinions
on this matter? I've tried many different searches and all I can find is
that is written by someone that sells SSL certificates so it could be

Thanks in advance!
