I received an invalid SSL certificate warning when visiting voat in the past week ... once and only once. Could have been a sophisticated MITM attack, or a fluke( if that's possible).

That is weird. Let me know if you see this again.

Certificate pinning fixes this, but if you cannot rely on your certificate provider to always be there, then it can cause down time if things go wrong.

I think that was when voat had to renew the ssl, and/or probably because there wasnt a secure element on the page, such as an image perhaps

If it's truly state sponsored actors, they have the master VeriSign keys and could spoof a legitimate certificate which your browser would accept.

Did you get the actual error the certificate returned?
