That seems a bit unlikely, and a bit hyperbolic. I’m not sure how donating money to a non-profit constitutes possible IP violations.
That’s not quite true either. The site has been flagged as not safe for children (because gambling) and the comments actually say there are no issues with malware.
Again, having a self signed certificate doesn’t mean it’s not “proper”. It gets a “B” on SSL Labs test if “trust issues are ignored”. That’s actually what I used to get before I switched to Let’s Encrypt.
Uhh, the more you try to defend your position, the weaker you make it sound. “A friend says”, “oh, the casino isn’t malicious but some other site was”, “I’m hearing word”. I’m really sorry, but this is all hyperbole and hearsay.
We get it, you don’t like gambling, but what you’re advocating is just as silly as a breast cancer research charity rejecting donations from a porn site (that actually happened). Unsupported claims of IP violations, malicious sites, and improper certs make it look like your trying to justify an existing opinion.
“Get some perspective” or perhaps “That’s fine, go pay for a cert from a morally acceptable source”.
Should no american vote republican simply because they’re also supported by hate groups such as the KKK and the Westboro Baptist Church? I think your “friend” should be more concerned by the actual actions of Let’s Encrypt, rather than some “faith” he has in perceived wrongs of unrelated sponsors.
