That's a funny comment.

You ever hear of "Customer is King":

A customer does not want to be told what to do. It is he who demands, not the other way around.

You should be where your customers are because saving them the hassle and the bustle will make them more likely to patronize you.

If you don't want my money, then I am taking my business elsewhere. And by elsewhere I do not necessarily mean "piracy". I simply spend my money on something else or don't spend it all.

Then provide a way for me to pay you.
I don't have a credit card. I don't use paypal. Etc.
But I have got a load of cash and usb sticks.
How can I buy whatever art it is you are making???
Exactly - I can't.
So don't blame me. If you don't want my money, I take my business elsewhere.
For this same reason Skype never got my business. I had money, they didn't want it, so they didn't get my business. And looking back now nothing of value was lost really.
You don't do business on my terms, you lose. Up to you.

The problem that I pointed out has nothing to do with the root certificate authority (rootca), but everything with the fact that the certificate used on their web server expired almost one year ago.

bash $ openssl s_client -connect shoals.sam.usace.army.mil:443 2>&1 | openssl x509 -noout -enddate
notAfter=Jun 9 19:24:51 2014 GMT

But you're right, that is yet another problem with this certificate that the rootca is not available on a normal user's computer.

And now you want me to download a rootca from some shady link that some dude on slashdot posted and trust that? In your dreams.

https://shoals.sam.usace.army....

This Connection is Untrusted

You have asked Firefox to connect securely to shoals.sam.usace.army.mil, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure.

shoals.sam.usace.army.mil uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate is not trusted because the issuer certificate has expired.
The certificate expired on 2014-06-10 02:24. The current time is 2015-04-06 13:17.
(Error code: sec_error_expired_issuer_certificate)

Next time provide a link that actually works.

This list is too long for Bugzilla's little mind; the Next/Prev/First/Last buttons won't appear on individual bugs.
Status: UNCONFIRMED, NEW, ASSIGNED, REOPENED
Product: Firefox
10000 bugs found.

Firefox bug list (probably incomplete because of a query limit of 10000)
You would think that with that many open bugs, they would know what to work on.
And I don't mean just close them as "won't fix", but actually work on them, fix them.

To all of you above - Thank you for proving my point.

As a foreign visitor to NL - you're fucked.

Now compare this to Switzerland - at the train station you can buy train tickets with cash at a ticket machine. And more importantly - you can upgrade your train ticket to include unlimited local public transportation for one day at the destination. With a simple click of a button.

To me that makes Switzerland a very visitor friendly place.
