So while I do understand what you're trying to do, HTTPSifying something
that has become a spam site doesn't do any good to anybody.  If you
*really* want to improve this file, dealing with this sort of issue would
be a much more useful contribution.  

I agree that fixing the links in general is a mildly useful thing to do.
But this kind of mindless replacement is taking a fair amount of my time,
and I just can't bring myself to apply patches that do something like
this.  Please, slow down a bit and think about how to actually improve
things rather than polishing unseemly items like the above.

Thanks,

jon
