user passwords and birthdays, my main concern being passwords.

The transit encryption would prevent eavesdropping on that information because as it stands, anyone enters their password to sign up or to login to this site, everyone between their own computer, and the camaro6 servers can grab that information, easily.

It ensures the 'C' of the CIA triad, ensuring the only party that receives that information is the one intended to get that information, which would be the camaro6 forums.

You are correct to point out if either the forums or the user's computer are compromised it doesn't matter anyway, but assuming the security of both, it protects the users password information.

In a perfect world people wouldn't reuse or use easy to guess passwords, but unfortunately that's not this world.
