          He explained why in his blog post, linked above. In particular, he stated that he is opposed to being "required to request permission from the authorities to make a secure web site". He considers a certificate authority to be an external dependency, and he is worried that the certificate authority will "inevitably fuck up some simple thing".

          Really, he's just following the KISS principle (Keep It Simple, Stupid).
