I see that my comment on HN that static sites shouldn't be pushed into having to have run HTTPS went over like a bucket of bricks.

Teenage me figured out how to get Apache running on the home PC so I could host my "home page"

Teenage me wouldn't have a clue how to get a cert set up.

Requiring HTTPS becomes an additional hurdle, easy for corporations to jump over, but horrible for the amateur.

I'd rather a playground for enthusiasts than a system built where the corp interests are central.
