Subject: Network spying as it impacts those of us at commondreams
I am happy that you have kept some focus on the issue of spying on our internet communications. Being thus aware of the issue, it perplexes me that you have not taken the step to use https for commondreams and the commons. Without it, every article we read and every post we make is visible on the network, tracked and connected both to our IP and to our login name. As a result of the revelations of Edward Snowden, Wikipedia has made the jump. Would you also consider correcting this problem?
(You can also phone commondreams at: 207.775.0488. I called & emailed and got no reply. We really need more people to express their concern.)
