This attitude seems to be, on a first look, the most logical and respectful one. But, I want to be remember, that the risk perception is often not proportional *at all* to the risk itself. In daily life, many risks are suppressed because the imagination of a constant threat would paralyse all activities. So, this feedback from the Chinese community should be handled carefully. I tend myself to think that deploying HTTPS everywhere and force its usage is the best long term approach. However, this is without any doubt, a difficult dilemma.
