The https security certificate is ok (and the site traffic is encrypted) but browsers continue to change the information they want stored in the security certificate. Suffice it to say there is no security risk - but some browsers are being uppity and are requiring you "provide" more information in the certificate.

There is no technical reason to do so, but sometimes I swear they just change things in order to create more work for web site owners :)

I use safari on my iPhone, and it really didn’t want me to connect to the site.

It thought you were impersonating BonsaiNut.

I'm receiving a similar alert that the website is blocked due to security reasons.
However there is a choice given which goes like this : "I understand the risks take me there anyway" and this is the way I can log in to the website.

There's the option at the bottom of the page to go to the site, "understanding the risks."

There is some risk. I've seen a lot of new buttholes get torn open here.

Works for me. Good job on the switch over. A huge job I imagine. Thank you for the site!

NOTE: Click an interesting ad!

My antivirus says the certificate is signed by bonsai nut to bonsai nut and it's corresponding validity dates are 16/05/2019 - 17/05/2019.
It might have something to do with just those dates, but I'm no server-guy.

Google Chrome on my laptop will not let me on, period. Safari on my phone let me choose to bypass their better judgment, LOL.

Chrome mobile will let me view the site if I click through two extra pages each time I enter a new thread. I cannot comment, like, or in any way interact with the site. Downloaded Firefox just to leave this comment :)

Safari has also banished the address and icon from the “Frequently Visited” section on my phone. It’s like Bonsainut has been cyber-erased.

I got in by using Foxfire as mentioned above. Curious if it will allow me to post. Because when I got in using chrome after several attempts trying I couldn't post.

Many on Facebook are having same issues.

I am aware of the issue... and busily working on it :)

The browsers are reporting a "false positive" security alert.
