I am unconvinced - when I'm looking for a book review (or even just a pic of  a cat with a hamburger), one thing I don't consider is whether a page is on a secure server. I see such a blanket change as  baseless, expensive (in several ways) and an example of Google's egregious attempts to control the world.

Greetings all. Been at Squidoo for two years, though I've not done much this last year - now looking to kick on and get some money flowing :)  Background: I'm a software engineer, mainly managing large scale bespoke developments these days. I try not to be too geeky - I actually don't like Star Trek!

Hey Paul, am guessing you joined the LFC community too? Did hear that it was the most popular CL community so far! ;)

Hi all, I'm Paul, also known as PaulOnBooks; good to have found this group.
 I have a blog at and I write on various things at Squidoo:   Too much writing for fun and not income before now - but lots of good intentions for 2013 :)
