That's pretty much the response you should expect to get when telling
a commercial webmaster that their site is broken (note they probably
didn't write the site themselves).

However, as you haven't named and shamed, it might be interesting to
know whether the secure web site has the same domain name as the primary
site, as it is quite common to undermine the whole point of SSL certificates
by using an unknown third party to process the secure transactions.  If
they've done that, they have no grounds for claiming they have a secure
site.
