It simply means the site is probable using secure socket layer (SSL) to
encrypt the traffic between the host and the client. This makes it
impossible for anybody *else* to look at the traffic.

This has nothing to do with looking at your system and determing who you
are, which anybody can do if you have not closed your ports correctly with
an appropriate firewall or proxy server.

PS, don't believe everything you read.

Aw shucks and I thought ML was my own personal secretary. Seems that
he's been tarting his services around the whole group. Shame.
