It means passwords and Private Messages aren't interceptable easily, so impersonation and other related mayhem is a lot harder to achieve. I can't fathom why someone would want to do that on IIS, but then there are millions of people who presently believe that a group of Satanic, cannibalistic paedophiles (in Government, Holywood and business) run a global child sex trafficking ring, so who knows what motivates folk to do crazy things. The internet seems to have amplified the loonies' thought processes through a positive feedback loop, so locking the doors (so to speak) seems like a good idea.

(Of course, you shouldn't re-use passwords between sites, even if encryption is in use.)
