[liberationtech] wordpress.com extracts the S from https (update)

Now the httpS link I made by hotlinking an image has had the S removed,
can't understand this wordpress.com practice, should someone post a blog
story on wordpress.com and posts url with a httpS to another
wordpress.com blog the S gets removed . v odd

This is not about httpS links in the Browser Toolbar, but httpS url
embedded into a post, that gets change to a plain http link.

I a still not sure if I am explaining this issue well enough...

While it might not be the most pleasing solution, you could always turn
your
preferred link into a bit.ly link or use a similar service.

I've tested this with the https Twitter link, and it was preserved:
bit.ly/mjqepw

Best,
