Don’t agree with the conclusion you have drawn here… A paid certificate is no better than a free certificate if you are not paying attention to security (which is different from encryption). LE claims to be “securing the web” when all it is actually doing is encrypting traffic… these are two very different things. I have just rebuilt two sites which got hacked partly because their owners “thought” the were secure simply because they had an LE cert.
