Do we require an HTTPS certificate for static sites?

There is this misconception that an HTTPS certificate is required only when collecting sensitive information like credit card data and personal information.

However Troy Hunt highlights in his demo how this could be far from the truth.

Also, if your idea is that this does not affect you in any way I strongly suggest you have a look at the demo.
