I just noticed that when I am not logged-in, I get this "not secure" notice on the website (see screenshot). If I hover over the notice to view site information, it provides these details "Your connection to this site is not secure. You should not enter any sensitive information on this site (for example passwords or credit cards) because it could be stolen by attackers." Once I go to log in though, it becomes safe again and "https" appears with the lock. I think this notice is coming from Google Chrome. Just thought to point this out. Is it happening to anybody else?
If you use http instead of https then you will get that warning on most browsers now. Secure websites should force it to https if the user has an old link without it.
However, it seems you discovered that HubPages forces it to https only when logged in. They should force https in all cases. I do that with my website.
For now, make sure you use the secure https in all your social media links to hubs. That will avoid people getting that warning.
I just reported it to Robin. I'm sure she will pass my email to the appropriate programmers.
Thanks for bringing this to our attention. This issue has been reported and we are working on a fix.

Do you think forums should be OFF LIMITS to newly signed up people???The amount of spam coming into the forums by these people in the last week is amazing. Just now I got notifications of 32 forum posts by spammers who signed up less than 20 minutes ago and copy pasted the same spammy message...
