Many websites redirect http to https automatically. This is the only one I use regularly that doesn't do this automatically.

It is slightly jarring when I'm logged in to see the padlock disappear in my web browser. But then the solution MaiKL suggested is available to all of us: edit our bookmarks so http becomes https.

P.S. The actual security not a real concern for me but, on reflection, automatic redirection would be the best solution. It is not a good look to be commenting on security and then leave this issue outstanding for the many users who arrive via other sites following "http" links.
