It worked for me. If I wasn't being clear, I was addressing Crudblud. I wasn't trying to make a technical suggestion on how the website or the chat ought to be run.

For a specific definition of "work", sure. It's still a terrible idea.

If you don't understand why Pete would think it's a terrible idea, you shouldn't be touching that setting.
I guess because I have a degree in Engineering I assumed it would be easy to understand.

Setting your client to accept invalid certificates defeats the entire purpose of SSL. It's like setting the lock on your front door to accept any key that someone bothers to put into it.

In this case, I'd say it's more like opening your front door when you already know perfectly well who's on the other side.

And this is why you shouldn't be touching that setting.

Really, that setting is like a condom. Lots of people will tell you to use it for your own protection, but in the heat of the moment, decisions need to be made.
You don't think I'm going to post here sober, do you?  ???

I have embraced my Benny Franko side. I'm sleazy.

Fixed. I'll fix this properly one of these days.
