I don't think you need worry. My browser tells me this when I click on the Not secure notice in the address bar:

It’s just browsers getting more security aware.  The forum has not become less secure.

I see the same message on my iMac.  It means that the connection between our computers and the Melodeon.net server is not encrypted.  This is a function of the hosting server and I think it makes life easier for the people who maintain the website.  It is not a big deal for discussing melodeons but you would not want to exchange personal or financial information over a not secure (not encrypted) connection.
