Where has your https gone?
Where has your https gone? When I visited your forum before the hack, I had https, I think. Has your https also been hacked?
there has never been https on this server
Ahh, I am mistaken.

Anyway, Google will rank your forum higher, if you offer https.
i am sure we can reach #1 without it, though it could help of course.
It could of course also help against hacks

It helps against other sites masquerading as Python-forum to steal your password. Otherwise, it's not much different for hackers. But some corporate proxies block the HTTPS since they can't really tell what is going on...
Unless noted otherwise, code in my posts should be understood as "coding suggestions", and its use may require more neurones than the two necessary for Ctrl-C/Ctrl-V.

Imagine you're at an airport with a public wifi network. All regular HTTP requests you make are visible to everyone else on that network, using a tool like Wireshark. For regular posts, that doesn't matter, but if for example you visited an admin/moderator page with sensitive credentials, those credentials would be plaintext visible due to the lack of HTTPS. Blocking HTTPS today seems extremely rare, and not a good reason for not having HTTPS.

I am concerned for lack of https too. At least login page have to be https.

I have got another quite simple point pro https. When I am surfing along "my" forums https://r-forum.net, https://quantinvestor.net, https://python-forum.de this forum is the only one with no https, requiring an extra adaption back to http. This is getting on the nerve after a while, when there is always one little outsider, which web address needs special treatment. 

Another vote for HTTPS here. Let's Encrypt works if it's a money concern.
