They can't afford a cheap SSL certificate. Having said that, why does it need to be? There is no exchange of sensitive data between the browser and their server. (No login or registration). Am I missing something?

Yes, any reputable online presence should be using https regardless of whether there is a login or even commerce. I just didn't notice until today that it was gone and wondered if anyone else noticed it earlier or had an explanation.

I'm not suggesting anything conspiratorial. Just odd that an established site with such a long history is no longer secure site and I was wondering if anyone had any insight.
