 most of Bookie's traffic is not  encrypted, and you may be vulnerable to
 packet sniffing.  Also note that there is no  expectation of privacy on this
 server.  Although I intend to keep all bookmark information private,  I reserve
 the right to look at any and all data on the server for debugging purposes.
