Hi there,

since #706094 is closed, I cannot connect anymore to a private IRC
server that uses a self-signed SSL certificate. In my opinion it's a bit
too strict to not allow any connection at all to such servers.

It would be nice to warn the user about bad SSL certificates, but still
give her/him a chance to connect to the server. E.g. a window with a
warning that the server should not be trusted and two buttons: "cancel
connection" and maybe "Continue, I know what I'm doing". Additionally a
checkbox "Remember my decision" would make me completely happy :)

Cheers - Fuddl
