CF is a disaster, makes internet centralized and censored
I understand why service providers use it and need something like this but this is not the right way

People will come up with self hosted security solution for avoiding situation like this.
It is nonsense security solution. If You notice when OCT forum started using this solution It degraded the user experience.

This will be the next startup Idea. Self hosted security solution.

Yeah, it's a shame they are the only one on the market offering such service.

We have been using CF since 2018 - what is it you see that "degraded the user experience." ? Maybe we can do something about it.

Cloudflare use "CAPTCHA" to Prove that "You are Human ". To counter "Denial-of-service attack" or bot attack. This solution is very annoying. Not only for this website, whichever website use this service has this "CAPTCHA". It just degrade the user experience. To open account It is understandable. BUt for just read the article You have to prove the human is "OVER DO".

As IT professional, I Know that There is no better solution but This solution is very annoying. Someone Should innovate something Revolutionary to Differentiate the Good Bot and Bad Bot,
Real Visitor VS Bot Visitor. It is hard but not Impossible.

May be Next steve job reading this Forum and Come up with solution ... Finger Crossed.

haha, it's a huge business to distinguish humans and bots as well as solutions to pretend you're human
and that's the whole point - it's very very difficult but in the end possible to overcome all the fingerprints and spying techniques CF is using and offering - just a matter of motivation/reward - there is no point to do this to your customers
DDoS protection is another thing but you can surely choose from more than just CF

fuct CF, don't use them and support them
