#greatcloudwall gets further politicized: Terminates Service for 8Chan - the #greatcloudwall gets one step closer to dictating what you can/cannot say on the internet

Cool new tool : Cloud Firewall
"I can't visit Army.mill and Archive Today with Cloudflare DNS."
Let’s test: https://danwin1210.me/url.php?id=39706
archive.today CloudFlare: (None) Google: A 188.8.131.52 (Russia, AS51659 LLC Baxet)
archive.is CloudFlare: A 184.108.40.206 (NSA, AS13335 Cloudflare, Inc.) Google: A 220.127.116.11 (Russia, AS51659)
Why these results are completely different!? Try OpenNIC: https://www.opennic.org/
“client was trying to make session requests to their API servers but before I can prevent it, cloudflare had me blocked. It’s pretty bad as half the internet is behind Cloudflare.”
Take a look at Cloudflare’s transparency report, “Some things we have never done” section.
Cloudflare has never terminated a customer or taken down content due to political pressure.*
If you’re using SumatraPDF, you won’t notice * is a link to https://www.cloudflare.com/cloudflare-criticism/ . Apparently they’ve terminated a political account. Do you think it’s okay to make a false statement and hide a link to tiny asterisk?
"Sites that respect their visitors do not resort to Cloudflare." "In some cases, for particular countries, having all traffic visible to the U.S.A can be a matter of life and death."

“In a not-so-distant future, if we’re not there already, it may be that if you’re going to put content on the Internet you’ll need to use a company with a giant network like Cloudflare, Google, Microsoft, Facebook, Amazon, or Alibaba.”

AV Updates blocked by cloudflare - “how to proceed?” http://forums.clamwin.com/viewtopic.php?t=4915 http://lists.clamav.net/pipermail/clamav-users/2018-November/thread.html
This project was started by Shiro (@shiromarieke@birdsite) and CryptoParty Berlin (@cryptopartybln@birdsite). Shiro handed over support to the greater internet in summer 2016.
However it was pointed out that this website itself was on cloudflare, and cloudflare actively blocked Tor users to access it.
So it was moved to systemli.org : ( https://pad.systemli.org/p/noncloudflare-torblocks ) and an onion service ( http://j7652k4sod2azfu6.onion/p/noncloudflare-torblocks , http://j7652k4sod2azfu6.onion/p/cloudflare-tor , http://j7652k4sod2azfu6.onion/p/cloudflare-philosophy )
These systemli pads needed to be updated once in every while (week? month?) or the whole list was scrubbed.
This happened a few times, and there were some attempts at vandalism up to and including june 2016
A fork was made during a multi-day outage at http://git.vola7ileiax4ueow.onion/fuckcloudflare/cloudflare-tor/ (new, not GitHub repo)
However vola7ileiax4ueow’s git service went down, so it was moved to github
There used to also be a list of websites that were on cloudflare but are no longer. This list has been lost ( it was on https://pad.systemli.org/p/ex-cloudflare-tor )
