Since Let's Encrypt is now a reality, maybe PS Cave (forums) should switch to https at least on login page?

For what purpose? It's not like sensitive information is being shared here.

Well I sure don't have any sensitive information on my profile for obvious reasons, others may... It would really bug if someone hijacked my account. If that happens, my profile information will be stored elswere for future spam, profiliation etc use.
Also Firefox has started to complain about plain text communication on logging page. If something the security will only harden in browsers. I think it's only a matter of time until browsers simply deny to send form data (especially password) over plain http.

Better to be safe than sorry.
