Snopes.com on 'http' vs 'https'

Snopes.com is a great web site for debunking or confirming urban legends that seem to constantly float around the net. It's the first place I turn whenever I see a questionable story in an email I get.

Apparently there is an email floating around talking about the difference between 'http' and 'https' web addresses (something I touched on when I blogged about web surfing security), and Snopes wrote an nice article on the issue. Somewhat surprisingly for an email floating around the net, the original email was basically correct.
