EDIT:  I shouldn't follow the bait and I should simply have not responded.  Since I can't delete this post this is the best that I can do.

sites didn't even use https (come on .. duh!!!) until DDOS started probing and individuals started losing coins from their pool accounts
... wait, what?

Not replying to your edit here (nothing to say about it).  No pool that I know of [or of significance] used HTTPS until one person at Deepbit had over 100BTC stolen [which Tycho paid for I believe].  I seem to recall several other accounts [a very small % of all however] had their payout wallet address changed to point to somebody else thus ripping off miners who didn't notice the change. Tycho implemented HTTPS after that and BTCMine followed suit shortly there after.  Slush still hasn't done so to my knowledge.  BTC Guild did it pretty quickly after it went online.  I wasn't referring to MtGox if that is what you were thinking; they suffer[ed] from an entirely different set of problems.
What had the entire https story to do with DDoS?

It became a sub-thread.  However, I should not have responded further to any of it.
