Secure content

Question

Is anyone else sick of the warning that "only secure content is displayed"? I know we can shut off the warning but we shouldn't have to. The ad choices that are showing at the bottom of the page is what is causing the issue. Most are ok but some of them like the ad for slingshot leads back the an https address and that is causing the issue. Ad Choices should clean up their ads to get rid of the https links. Here is the link behind one of the offending ads

It is a feature in internet explorer when a page has a mix of secure and unsecure content. This site is of course unsecure as it is http instead of https which is totally proper. The https is used at check out for online stores when transmitting credit card data etc. The problem is that some of the ad choices ads are using an https address so we get the warning. There is no reason for them to be using the https on an ad. Likewise there is no security risk to us it is just a pain to have to keep clicking on the warning to dismiss it

If I am the only one then please disregard, I just assumed others were getting the same message. It is not consistent and I can go days without seeing it and then it will come up repeatedly every time I view a thread or return to unread threads.

Ad choices display ads based on tracking cookies that are saved on your computer. Apparently several sites I have been to use a pictures that resides on a secure server for the ad choices ads. Slingshot is one of those sights, I haven't seen it again since I wrote this but I will try and track what others are also using a secure site for storing their ad choice banner ads

Good, someone other than just me. There are many websites that mix secure and unsecure content. Usually it is seen when you go to the secure side of a website and they have a logo or picture that has a non secure source. It just seems crazy that some companies are using a secure code source for an ad displayed on a regular url
