Does this response (below) make sense technically?
I have my doubts.

If it doesn't then I invite others on list to join me in putting some pressure on OkCupid, starting with just showing them how to deploy https and keep their ads.

(If it does, then, depending on the details, perhaps that pressure should be directed at Google instead, to allow their ads to be embedded in sites served over https.)

I am also trying to get to serve only https. They have completely ignored me so far. Some more voices could be helpful.
I know I can use instead, which is better on a number of fronts, when I initiate the poll, but people still send me doodle polls every so often.

Thanks for your message. We can't offer https on the entire site because it would also prevent our ads from Google Ads from being served. Our developers are aware of the issue and would like to offer it when possible.

Could you please enable https everywhere? Or tell me what is your reason for selectively enabling https on only some portions of the site?

I use a _javascript_ blocker which doesn't allow scripts on non-secure sites. I've whitelisted, but it keeps apparently randomly switching back and forth between https and http, and then breaks on the http since it's so heavily _javascript_-based. (I had to switch to an untrusted one-off browser just to submit this bug report.)

I persist in demanding https despite it breaking sites like yours (though note it doesn't break bigger sites like Google or Wikipedia) because I want a better web. Some of the reasons are spelled out here:
