OK, so your original remark was flippant? I misread. :)

The need for HTTPS really has nothing to do with proxies or however many servers sit between you and the intended recipient. Even 2 computers on the same local network (directly connected) have all their traffic visible to other computers on that network - it's the nature of almost all the physical link layers we use.

Hi Mark,

Of course I have heard of packet sniffers. However, if two people decide 
to make a direct connection between two computers, using one direct 
cable, they might as well ask their friend what is going through the 
cable instead of using a packet sniffer :-)

Best regards,
