This website does not supply ownership information


HTTP connections generally don't supply any reliable identity information to the browser. That's normal. HTTP was designed to simply transmit data, not to secure the data it transmits.

"This website does not supply ownership information." ::: This simply means the connection to the website or blog is unencrypted. So, it's technically not possible to guarantee that the browser is connecting to the site which is shown in the address bar. Mozilla says this is the default text for each http://-website.

The only way for websites to "supply ownership information" would be through a secure connection and an "Extended Validation Certificate" which will cost a few hundred USD and upwards per year at the relevant certificate authorities:

If the "This website does not supply ownership information." error prevents you from loading a webpage in Windows,  use Ctrl+Shift+K (Control-Option-K on Mac) to open the web console, deactivate the css, js and security filters, and press F5 to reload the page, to show all the requests of the page. Nexct, adjust the code for each line which is showing "mixed content", i.e. change the appropriate parts of your code to use https:// or, depending on your case, protocol-relative URLs.

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
