Are you ok with the Comodo CA certificate, comodo CA is known for spying and doing other shady stuff. Just wondering?

Are you talking about our SSL cert? who would you get the cert from? We just went with something free. I don't know that the cert really matters all that much, but we can always change it if you can show me why it's worth changing. We just needed to enable https because that's how the code is designed, that's all. I've never heard of comodo before, do you have a link that explains the shadiness?

the only problem with self-signed certificates is, that you have to accept them manually.

for anyone not knowing what the fuck a certificate is this looks "shady". ..but there really is no technical/security issue with self-signed certificates.

a lot of "big" ca issuers have been regarded as "not trustworthy" or at least "shady" in security minded communities. (i don't really know much about this topic, to confidently state something... i just know things are somewhat shady...)

... don't know if a self-signed certificate would be an option for this domain, i wouldn't mind :)
