    Why isn't the login on a secure server? Just curious.

    This avoids only man-in-the-middle attacks. The server itself is still vulnerable and requires additional protection.

    Disabling the dialog is bad.

    Every time a thread opens, a page is opened, or the site is refreshed, you'll get a warning. It gets old real fast.
