Inconsistency between related things is annoying.

I guess props for consistently returning different things.

I agree that this (at the very least) violates (what I consider to be) 
reasonable expectation and surprises users.

I'm of the opinion that if you have www.sss.gov and sss.gov, that they 
should behave in very similar and related ways.  -  My personal 
preference would be for sss.gov to 30[1267] redirect to www.sss.gov. 
Ideally any non-HTTPS to HTTPS.
