Why would it matter who signed it? I am happy to handle the ssl
handshake mitm for you. All your encrypted data is belong to me.

I was referring to the CA that signs it. It was implied that
freessl.com, who gives out trial certificates, is an unreliable CA. I
do not understand why their certs would be any less valid than
anothers.

As long as the website listed on the cert is the website you are
visiting, why should it matter who issued the cert?
