#8541 closed enhancement (fixed)

Option to suppress prompt to switch to FTP-SSL

Request: a CLI option to suppress the prompt that asks me if I want to switch to FTP-SSL when I connect using unencrypted FTP.

Explanation: My webhost's server advertises itself as offering FTP-SSL, but in fact this protocol only works for customers who have paid for that feature. This means that duck always prompts me with the following:

The server supports encrypted connections. Do you want to switch to FTP-SSL? Please contact your web hosting service provider for assistance. Continue (y) or Change (n): (y/n):

Since FTPS does not in fact work for me, even though the server advertises it as a possibility, I cannot run duck in a fully automated manner. I must answer this question with "y" every single time. If duck included an option to suppress this prompt and simply connect using the specified protocol regardless of whether a better one was available, it would allow me to achieve full automation.
