Why are these forums using https?

Here at work I am restricted to IE6, and I am unable to change the security settings. Consequently, whenever I change pages within the forums, I get a security warning about some page content not being secure, despite being sent over a secure connection. This becomes very tedious very quickly indeed.
When I access the forums from home, mainly using Firefox, this is not an issue.
It seems odd that a forum of this nature is using secure http - presumably this is historic. Is there any reason this can't be changed to just use normal http for the forums?
ETA: I also find I can't scroll up/down the forum pages using the arrow keys on my keyboard... Huh

Try removing the 's' from 'https' in the address line. They don't have to be accessed using the secure protocol.

I wonder how that happened...
