Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I feel excluded from the OSM forum because I do not want to transmit my OSM passwort over open channels.

This has been discussed for years now, see here or here. The link in the first post, which used to explain the schedule in 2014, is broken and leads to a comment that the forum software has "recently" (when was that?) been upgraded, and "not all previous modifications have been re-applied yet", promising details in a link that is, however, broken again.

it was only upgraded 2 weeks ago or so, see this thread. Also, you are referring to a number of threads in the German forum, but are there any posts from the site maintainer (Lambertus) in those threads ? For a reliable answer I would contact him.

Thank you, Frederik! If the forum doesn't offer SSL, I will exclude myself from logging in. It can't take years to protect private passwords from being submitted in plain text over the rotten internet!
