That’s exactly what I did. http://lists.busybox.net/pipermail/busybox/2018-May/086444.html

Say what?

That’s a hyperbole. The thing is that when you don’t verify the peer’s
certificate, then you’re vulnerable to MitM attack with fake certificate injection. The whole SSL/TLS is totally useless in that moment. It’s more or less like putting the door’s key under the carpet right in front of the
door.

Allowing to bypass/ignore certificate verification is ok-ish in some
situations, but only when the user do it consciously, using explicit option
such as --no-check-certificate, not silently as the default option.

wget.c:

//config:       If you still think this is unacceptable, send patches.
//config:
//config: If you still think this is unacceptable, do not want to send //config: patches, but do want to waste bandwidth explaining how wrong
//config:       it is, you will be ignored.
