Re: VM "The Connection"

An expired certificate is not necessarily a sign of a scam site. I've seen it a few times on trusted sites. Often (at least in the past) has been due to self certification.
In the main there is nothing wrong with that as long as you remember to renew it, humans being humans quite often forget until reminded.

No reply from Claire, and the security issue is still seen by Firefox.

Hi Taf, I'm also a member of the Connection, it is offline for the present. There is a holding page visible using Chrome which states

I would say, don't give up hope. As per your original post,

Fingers crossed for you that Claire will respond to you quickly. I would check my spam/junk folder just to be on the side of caution

Still no reply from emails to The Connection, or from a thread in the VM tech chatter forums.
