Does anyone care CPT does not have an SSL Certificate? I looked into getting one and it's about $70/year through GoDaddy. Back in the hayday I would have bought it, but now that traffic seems to be slower I don't think it's necessary.

However, it is suppose to boost your search results if you have it.

I thought at one point Chrome was going to block all http and only allow https. Now sure if that's going to happen, but if it does then I'll be forced to do it.

I think probably not worth the $70.

Lol, I'm kidding. It doesn't bother me unless it eventually brings me to a "The page you are navigating to is unsafe" type page.

Yes. If that happens my hand will be forced and I'll be paying the money. I refuse to let CPT die!!

I run CPT at a 90% net loss even with Amazon profits.

It's Erin's fault. She uses Amazon smile rather than your banner, so all those funds go to some stupid charity instead of a good cause, like running CPT.
