Belief has nothing to do with it. The article is vaguely referring
to 'search' and incorrectly jumps to https. Disappointing that 
nanog readers can't read http://www.paxfire.com/faqs.php and get
a clue, instead all the mouth-flapping about MItM and https. While 
collectively encouraging more https is a *good* thing, it is utterly
tangential and misses the meat of this matter.
