yeah, there's been discussion over this before, several people have
pointed out it's a shoddy way to do things. apparently openmoko sign
their own certificates (i think), so it's not recognised as coming
from a certificate authority. there's three things you can do:

1. change the 'https' at the start of the address to 'http'
2. manually accept the certificate
3. tell openmoko this is a bad way to do things, and to either get
certificates which aren't signed by them, or not use an https address
for something as trivial as unsubscribing from an email list. it
scares and confuses people to 'Add Security Exceptions'
