“Cloudflare, we have a problem”

  • This is a list of voices. Thank you for sharing your opinion.
    • Disclaimer: This does not mean we endorse you.
🖼 🖼
It's pretty sad when even the hometown paper is behind the greatcloudwall.
C'mon guys. Stop using Cloudflare.
It's endangering the world wide web and you're blocking readers who are protecting
their privacy by using Tor.

-- Mr. Jeff Cliff, BSc PROFILE USES CLOUDFLARE (Issue 28: WTF Why is Jeff Cliff using Cloudflare website?)

Man-in-the-middle attack is a serious offense.
If you′re using Cloudflare on your website, you won′t get first rank.
You shouldn′t use it if you value visitor′s privacy.

-- Crimeflare #Search (aka Searxes)

There have been many cases of cloudflare denying people access to a website
without the website owner knowing.
I'm a legitimate user increasing my security by using a VPN but Cloudflare mistakenly
decides I'm a bot and denies access.
There have also been cases where Cloudflare just stops allowing anyone to visit a website
simply because they don't think anyone should be able to.

Regardless, that's not my main objection to Cloudflare.
As a "man in the middle", they get access to all of my traffic.
With the SSL certificates they provide, your connection is encrypted to Cloudflare then
decrypted and sent to the server. The lock icon in your browser means absolutely nothing
when a third party is literally getting all of your traffic when you connect to that site.
Beyond that, with so many sites using Cloudflare, cross-site tracking becomes a problem.

In addition, with so many websites behind Cloudflare, when it goes down, half the web is down.
The internet was designed to be decentralised and Cloudflare is centralising it.
Half of the internet relying on a single entity is dangerous.

-- Amolith

Think about your visitors.
Do you like it when websites ruin a bit of your experience?
In other words: Would you love to visit a website which forces you
to solve a annoying timewasting puzzle usually after waiting five
seconds which also cost you valuable time?
Awesome! Use Cloudflare!

-- Robin Wils

I say it's a bad idea to pimp CloudFlare sites and expect such repressions to go unchallenged.
Activism is a duty & ethics trumps netiquette.

Posting original information exclusively on onion sites
is like affirmative action for the repressed Tor community.
Correcting the wrongs of CloudFlare entails some unfair discrimination against clearnet users.

-- Activist

Because you are a normie that uses Tor and/or a VPN. I’m in the same boat. I use one - that is, a VPN - and man alive! Captchas, captchas everywhere. I’m annoyed to the point that I simply don’t go to sites that use captchas. Which, annoyingly, are a great, many sites, because everyone and their grandmother seems to be using Cloudflare nowadays. Sorry, rant over.

Anyone still having problems connecting? Is Cloudflare still screwed?

Try browsing the web using Tor or a VPN. You will spend the day doing Google recaptchas for like 90% of the websites you visit, I guarantee it. All thanks to Cloudflare.

why the fuck does so much stuff run on Cloudflare?!

The devs of systemd, the main init system on Linux, use Google and cloudflare for fallback/default NTP and DNS, when asked to use privacy respecting alternatives, they call people conspiracy theorists

TOO MANY to list here. It is IMPOSSIBLE to list them all! See for yourself. (Too many to read)

“captchas makes it so I can’t visit some sites now. Verify I am human but it doesn’t refresh / forward to the site I’m visiting as expected. Manual refresh brings captcha again, often with none of what they are asking you to click on. Refresh on some sites work” (matrixglitch1)

“Question why do I always have to click umbrellas on cloudflare but Shopify hasn’t made captcha a standard in there api -- ?” (la3life)

“i’m experiencing the same. Patreon is unbearably slow, and then Cloudflare error messages. Please fix! Thanks!” (retrosfxsports)

“the error its showing me is some kind of connection issue between cloudflare and aqstream, idk, i tried it many times for the first episode, couldnt watch the two after and now i’m once again sitting here looking at an error page 😐” (grumblyein)

“What is going on with the store today? Isn’t the whole point of the queue system that the servers don’t get stressed to the point of not working? I’ve been trying to check out for almost 40 minutes now, and I keep getting Cloudflare error 524, which is sever-side. 😑” (aquartistjames)

“FYI, for some obscure reason, from different italian ISPs I get the cloudflare timeout error. With foreign proxy or vpn is all working fine.” (georgethemarmot)

“cloudflare c’est inutile, les offres gratuite ne font rien a part rajouter un MITM et centraliser tout, et vu que ca tombe souvent en panne cest bien pire” (ramleseam)

“DDG wouldn’t use Cloudflare. CF’s primary service is MITM.” (kingslyj)

“The TIL was more about the domain name. It’s from the worlds largest MITM operation, I don’t really trust them.” (kingslyj)

“Michelle as a woman why do you allow revenge porn sites on your network and call it free speech? As a mother, why do you allow child porn sites on your network? Why do you allow Matthew to strong arm you on Cloudflare policies? I can’t believe you agree with them.” (phyzonloop)

“Starting to find edge services such as cloudflare to be super annoying! Every other website keeps asking me to do captcha. The algorithms for detecting bot vs. human traffic are garbage: anyone using VPN for privacy is automatically considered a bot.” (echerng)

“has anyone ever had issues with their IP address getting flagged by cloudflare and having to do a captcha for almost every site they visit? it’s keeping me from accessing other things like valorant as well. super annoying.” (garsh0p)

“O que está acontecendo com a Block + Captcha o tempo todo. Mais alguém passando por esses problemas?” (robertoachar)

“cloudflare is making my reading and learning on the webs very frustrating. every second site I visit I am faced with a double captcha step. any tips?” (boffin66)

“I think Cloudflare is starting too have too much influence on the net. I’m hitting their captchas often when using sites. A friend was recently asked to install a browser extension after failing a Cloudflare captcha check, something which is a BAD idea to train people to do.” (zorinlynx)

“Cloudflare blocks Tor, and although I can get your page to start loading by filling out the captcha, scripts necessary to load beyond a white page are locked behind other Cloudflare-protected domains, making it necessary to fish them out and fill out the captcha on all of them.” (happysmash27)

“I still can’t post anything without it taking me to a cloudflare error” (xeeceevevo)

“Hey, Is namesilo down right now? Cloudflare says host error??” (yuvrajkarle)

“Cloudflare advertising itself in its error pages is hilarious but enraging” (snoutpunk)

“if you scroll down there is a “join the party” button with the spotify logo. You click it, and it’s supposed to take you to pre-save, etc. But the page either doesn’t load, or I get a cloudflare error. So we broke it.” (soul_mapped)

“Is anyone else getting a cloudflare error when trying to click join the party? lol Did we break the pre-save website” (soul_mapped)

“Cloudflare is responsible for a huge chunk of the internet and their business model is literally MITM as a service.” (kingslyj)

““This works by situating the DNS providers’ nameservers behind a transparent DNS proxy” Cloudflare is amazing. Convincing half the internet to voluntarily undergo a MITM attack. I’ve always assumed NSA + God knows who else has all (unencrypted) traffic going through CF.” (thesteedster)

“That’s interesting, Cloudflare’s captcha is an image, which screenreaders can’t read, and there’s no audio. Which potentially means people with eye-sight issues can potentially be cut off from half of the Internet. a11y” (vebbed)

“StreamElements removed the CAPTCHA and is now throwing a 1020 error from Cloudflare when accessing the API. I’ll throw up a stream tonight with Streamelements and what HTTP requests are being done to StreamElements when doing a TTS. Hope I can get a workaround from there” (sitopog)

“fyi Cloudflare is throttling this link with a captcha” (vivainio)

“Hey Cloudflare, While logging into the System we have been getting the following error for a while. When will this problem be solved? ““api requirest failed: get/api/v4/captcha/challenge(undefined)””” (slaweally)

“is my ISP, and all of a sudden I have to enter a captcha on EVERY Cloudflare site, Internet wide. Can you tell me if there is an issue with any Cogeco IP blocks, as they say I have to contact you regarding this.” (alittlebitofmsg)

“So when are the brainiacs at etc, going to work out that everyone uses a VPN at home now, and IP addresses are not a useful metric for bot detection anymore? The overall UX of the Web is being murdered by a cartel of CAPTCHA wielding thugs. DO BETTER!” (shoguncysec)

“I can’t reach site from Germany since yesterday, I get a error page claiming it can’t be reached from Frankfurt. over a VPN the site works just fine. Maybe someone should look into that.” (pbhoeh)

“trying to log on Error 502 Ray ID: 5b76c177e98905aa • 2020-07-23 16:25:09 UTC Bad gateway You Browser Working Los Angeles Cloudflare Wo Cloudflare Ray ID: 5b76c177e98905aa • Your IP: 2606:6000:6302:7200:49d2:fa5c:78f6:f24d • Performance & security by Cloudflare” (mobilemark)

“mine is fixed now. it took them 5 days to figure it out. it worked when I used VPN to Singapore but if I was using my local Malaysia ISP i’d get a cloudflare error.” by 604xrp

So if your website is “protected” with Cloudflare it could not be accessible because of their: 1. Downtime (happens a lot) 2. Annoying captcha (every 2nd user get this) 3. IP Blocking (public wifi spots suffer from this) Think twice about using their shady service.

What you think of the almighty Cloudflare outage? In the words of the CEO “The status page for the status pages was also taken down”

TOO MANY to list here. It is IMPOSSIBLE to list them all! See for yourself. (#Cloudflare)

“i think it’s key to know your audience. If the audience cares about corporations controlling ppl’s lives, then stress the control-freakish aspects of CloudFlare like loss of netneutrality. If the audience is fine with corporate control, then stress CloudFlare’s incompetence & stress the security detriment of having a single global centralized point of failure.” (batalanto)

“Your premise that corporate-run svcs are equal is quite far from what I find. “Open access” is central to P2Pf’s advocacy. CloudFlare is the single most destructive force to open access. Consider Amazon, for example. As evil as it is, AWS does not attack open access. CF does. So to paint all corporations the same through the lense of P2Pf’s values is to cloud the problem.” (batalanto)

“I believe getting our own house in order is a crtical first step. It’s paramount for projects that exist for social justice pursuant to a free and open Internet to avoid CloudFlare themselves. It’s not just a moral principle-- there’s a practical problem when the operations of a social mission exclude their own advocates from access.” (batalanto)

“spot on bob. CloudFlare has the most power, it’s far too much, and unlike other tech giants ( Amazon), CF abuses their power to a perverse extent. Strypey, although I’d like to see CloudFlare wiped off the planet entirely, I’m particularly disturbed when those on a social mission that contradicts CF use CF for their mission. The hypocrisy is inexcusable & needs a spotlight of shame” (batalanto)

“ used to be a nice place. But it feels really hostile these days. If you attempt to preserve a tiny bit of privacy by using Tor, they won’t even let you take a look at public projects. Instead they’ll harass you with CloudFlare captcha which is requiring JavaScript and trying to force users to build ML training data. (btw. it still works to fight hcaptcha by giving partially wrong answers)” (uniq)

“ACM has been denying open public access to scientific papers anyway. Tor users are blocked because ACM has jailed their host in CloudFlare’s walled garden: The ACM site is also set to give a 302 error to the InternetArchive waybackMachine.

“ & avoid CloudFlare (and thus avoid the gamble of giving CF your personal & financial info), but they’re a bit different. is an unvetted list of crowdfunding services (research needed)” (aktivismoestasmialuo)

“Liberapay is a bad recommendation. That site is centralized in the privacy abusing walled garden of CloudFlare, plus they host on Amazon. I would not expect FediFollows to suggest a needlessly centralized service, in general.” (aktivismoestasmialuo)

“CloudFlare is evil. Let’s be clear: the evil is not in business success. The evil is in their lies and deceptions, their surveillance capitalist business model, and their abuse of power in dictating the tools that may users use to protect their privacy. It’s an injustice to make excuses for CF & for CF’s users.” (aktivismoestasmialuo)

“CloudFlare is the single biggest attack on the decentralized web. They could not possibly do enough w/IPFS to undo the collossal harm of centralizing over 10% of the web then abusing that power by dictating how people access the web.” (aktivismoestasmialuo)

Not sure when they made that foolish move, but strypey I suggest moving your contributions elsewhere and leaving a link to them. hypocrisy” by batalanto

using Tor shows how much sites are hidden behind Cloudflare. Yesterdays DNS problem of them showed even more of this privacy problem. With the EU making it clear that data transfer to US is not allowed this opens the question if transparent proxying traffic through Cloudflare is illegal now too. Especially where this opens MITM data collecting. IMHO sites behind Cloudflare should be blocked making them learn that privacy is valued.

It is sent to Cloudflare on the first request, so no possibility to ask the visitor in advance. Cloudflare will probably not be able to guaranty that data stay within EU.

Tor shows you who is behind Cloudflare, at least mostly. Because they present the captcha. Without Tor you do not really see who is sending your data to 3rd party because its kinda transparent.

well, their DNS went down too, there were no results for (unfortunately using cf) during the outage

maybe we shouldn’t have like half the internet belonging to one company

LOL , a bitcoin related site hiding behind cloudflare . better hire a new webserver team. ,:-)

#TorBrowser te ayuda a descubrir quien usa el popular y mayor enemigo de la privacidad, mejor conocido como Cloudflare, servicio GAFAM, que busca monetizar los datos personales de los usuarios y de pasada -puede- ser el mayor aliado de las agencias de vigilancia.

Moved away from Cloudflare thanks to the help of selea

Turns out pulling a MITM on half the internet wasn’t a smart idea.

Пользуясь случаем хочу напомнить почтенной публике что Cloudflare и прочие подобные сервисы, централизующие интернет, всё ещё зло. То же касается крупных централизованных социальных сетей. Спасибо за внимание. Приятных выходных

In der Nacht zum Samstag führte eine fehlerhafte Routerkonfiguration beim Dienstleister Cloudflare zu Ausfällen bei zahlreichen Internetdiensten in aller Welt.

Пользователи популярных интернет-сервисов заявили о проблемах с доступом. Об этом свидетельствуют данные портала Downdetector. Так, среди пострадавших сервисов оказались Google, Amazon Web Service, а также Discord, Cloudflare и другие. На проблемы в регистрации в Google жаловались 44% пользователей, а еще 55% испытывали трудности с поиском. Больше всего жалоб зафиксировано на территории США, Германии, Британии, Нидерландов и Польши. Жалобы также поступали из Москвы и Санкт-Петербурга. Кроме того, среди пользователей Discord 91% жалоб касается проблем с подключением к серверу. По данным портала Techcrunch, неполадки в работе сервисов связаны с проблемами работы службы Cloudflare.

Wegen eines Fehlers reduzierte sich der Netzwerkverkehr bei Cloudflare auf nur noch 50 Prozent. Davon waren viele Webseiten betroffen.

People using cloudflare get what they deserve. Every sane person has been warning others for years that it’s not great to have everyone depend on a single provider.

“On what basis are you calling CloudFlare “green”? CloudFlare actually attacks green users. If you use a text browser or disable image loading in your GUI browser (b/c images waste copious energy), CF assumes you’re a robot & either denies access or it pushes many images in the form of a CAPTCHA.

“Was mitunter daran liegt, dass Cloudflare die Funktion nicht nicht klar genug definiert und natürlich, dass jedes scheiß Medium TOR Kriminalisiert. Klar, man kann da Drogen, Waffen, ... kaufen, aber das kann ich fast an jedem Bahnhof auch ... Kriminalisieren wir deswegen gleich die Deutsche Bahn?” by kromonos

“Manche schieben meinen Groll gegen Cloudflare direkt auf die Privatsphäre ... Aber das ist nur ein kleiner Teil. Z.B. finde ich es kritischer, dass das SSL Zertifikat von denen terminiert wird. Was mich aber am meisten an Cloudflare nervt ist deren Politik gegenüber TOR Benutzer. Toll, sie haben eine eigene .onion Adresse ... Aber dass jeder TOR Benutzer direkt mit einem Captcha maltretiert wird, ist bei denen Standardmäßig aktiv ... Und kaum jemand macht sich die Mühe das um zu stellen.” by kromonos

“Banks have a standard level of security. It’s not as high as it should be but it’s well above CloudFlare. Too much money is on the line with banks to trust CloudFlare.Capital One was foolish enough to trust Amazon AWS, and they got stung for it.” by aktivismoestasmialuo

“I think I’ve only ever encountered one bank foolish enough to use CloudFlare. Liberapay, Patreon, & openCollective all expect donors to set aside ethics and make a charitable donation, one that gives their financial data to web’s most notorious privacy & netneutrality abuser. Of course it’s reckless.” by aktivismoestasmialuo

““CF also allows website admins..” It’s CloudFlare’s default setting that has put them in a position of abusing privacy & netneutrality.

“CloudFlare also pushes Google reCAPTCHA, from which further privacy abuse arises. From CF’s mistreatment of Tor users there is access inequality, attacking the single most important principle of netneutrality.” by aktivismoestasmialuo

“I never made the claim that the US gov. has CloudFlare’s view of the data, so I have no need to substantiate the US role. My claim that CF centralizes the web is well-substantiated in those articles.

“there are some (unvetted) alternatives here: OpenCollective should also be avoided ( CloudFlare)” by aktivismoestasmialuo

“both Liberapay & patreon are privacy-abusing CloudFlare sites. And worse, CF is a centralized netneutrality abuser which undermines the decentralization Lemmy hopes to achieve. I would not donate until they move off & Patreon.” by aktivismoestasmialuo

“It also would not make sense to evaluate the serverfarm that a website connects to since most of the traffic is between CloudFlare & the visitors, not website-to-CF. The vistors can come from anywhere, so you’d have to work out the percentage of unclean serverfarms under CF’s control. For AWS it’s 50%.” by resist1984

“then CloudFlare denies access to the very connections that are most respectful of the environment.” by resist1984

“CloudFlare is inherently energy wastefull. Bots & humans who use text-based browsers are the most environmentally respectful b/c they do not tend to download images (which consumes far more bandwidth than text). When images are not downloaded, CF’s Google CAPTCHA automatically treats the connection like a hostile bot, & actually pushes images to an otherwise very green session,” by resist1984

“XDAdevelopers is a horrible site. Not only is it jailed in CloudFlare’s walledgarden, but it’s run by extreme right-wing nutters. The first clue is is on Gab.

“I have to retract what I said earlier about Liberapay. They also use CloudFlare, which is an abuser of privacy & netneutrality.” by aktivismoestasmialuo

“the page has a lot more options than I was aware of, & it reminded of the CloudFlare site I couldn’t think of earlier: openCollective. It would be an embarrassment for any privacy-focused project to use CloudFlare, & for me it would be sufficient to question project motives. I would not donate even if the money could take non-CF paths.” by aktivismoestasmialuo

“I don’t know of any. Patreon is compromised by CloudFlare, bountysource is on Google Cloud and relies on a ton of javascript some of which is from CF, and it’s Paypal-only (so private data shared w/600 corps- see I forgot the other competitor but it’s also CF’d.” by aktivismoestasmialuo

I got the Google ReCaptcha, and after solving that for more than 10 to 15 times, where it seemed to give me access a few times, I was still not able to perform a search at all (meh) :_catsad: When will people realize that the “free of charge” for 1 website DDOS protection by CloudFlare is not at all a cool and “free” option to choose for. It is more like selling your soul and poisoning the Internet. Also : A few months ago I had to use the CloudFlare web admin interface for a friend. I added a subdomain for an admin login page for the website of my friend. Then I continued working on the site and suddenly noticed in the logs that the brand new subdomain was visited by several different ones, including a tor node. At first I got confused by it, and I found it very unpleasant, but in the end my conclusion is that CloudFlare is just dodgy. I hope that affordable CDN and DDOS protection alternatives will grow and vanish CloudFlare in the end.” Ajz

“If you’re at a small scale, why would you pretend you need the services that CloudFlare provides in the first place?

" fglt

" I understand the marketing team has a lot of other “functionalities” that you can list in order to make it look less bad, but you’re still doing all your users a massive disservice by employing CloudFlare inbetween them and your service. No matter how many cool features you think you’re getting for gratis, you’re still handing all your customer data to them, essentially through having them become the “middle man” of the “man in the middle” scheme.

“Also mit nginx eine eigene Firewall bauen, anstelle, wie es andere machen, Cloudflare zu nutzen.” kromonos

“How to shut down the bullshitweb? Switch off Cloudflare & AWS, approx. 80% done. There’s a Firefox (and Chrome) addon available at codeberg helping you decide what links not to click, as Cloudflare does a MITM” IzzyOnDroid

“DDoS protection is good – but the price it comes at… They’re said to play MITM in breaking up your encryption. And as I indicated: whenever they have an outage (and they had some), about 1/3 of “the internet” is unreachable…” IzzyOnDroid

“The PINE64 website is also cloudflared. This means that cloudflare terminates the secure connection, decrypts the traffic, and encrypts it again. That is terrible.” utf8equalsX

“Everyone should boycott censorship-loving @Cloudflare and any groups associated with it that they are able. (Dailymotion) Cloudflare 8chan Censorship " Styx666Official

“I found that over half the sites I tried to visit would not load at all unless I added exceptions, and some loaded but with broken elements. It seems to me it’s not healthy for the internet to have a single company controlling this much. They may be benevolent now, but what about the future?” kezzbracey

“Well done, Cloudflare. And thank you. Thank you for proving me right. You’re a surveillance and censorship company. You start with nazis and you move on closer from that edge” Dr. Roy

“And now bigTech cloudflare is deciding they need to be the gatekeeper of more speech. Because a crazy happened to post on one of their hosted sites???” poncho524

“Ich betreibe gleich seit fast 14 Jahren eigene Server und hab noch keinen Grund dafür finden können, sie komplett hinter einen Proxy von Cloudflare zu stellen. Ganz ehrlich... Wer Cloudflare wegen “Sicherheit” nimmt, der sollte aufgrund mangelnder Kenntnisse über Serversicherheit seinen Server besser kündigen und sich einfachen Webspace zu legen!” kromonos

“Services like CloudFlare are really nice with PatriotAct and NSA. USHackers whatawonderfulworld. CloudFlare create SSL certificates for sites they cache. So have the wholme traffic unciphered locally, and send it to the remote server to be cached. So, they have clear and unciphered access to the whole content : usernames passwords web content...” popolon

“Google reCaptcha nicht erreichbar? ... Na dann viel Spaß in der Hölle, freunde von Cloudflare” kromonos

“the internet is a huge place even once you disable javascript and many websites stop working, and you use tor so the greatcloudwall auto-blocks you.” jeffcliff

" Ich surf inzwischen fast ausschließlich über TOR. Außer bei Betreibern, denen ic traue. Deswegen hab ich so oft ärger mit CloudFlare. Nur wenige machen es z.B. wie nipos und deaktivieren den “TOR Schutz”.” kromonos

“na klasse. Noch so eine deutsche Firma, die glaubt, der Datenschutz sei gewährleistet, wenn man den kompletten Traffic durch einen proxy in den USA leitet. Also das Linux Magazin, nicht tuxedocomputers Man könnte echt meinen, die deutschen könnten ohne Cloudflare nicht mehr leben " kromonos

“This is a good example why it is bad to rely on cloudflare in masses. It felt like the internet was dying for a minute there.” SolSoCoG

“kann mir sicher beantworten, in wie weit Cloudflare mit dem deutschen Datenschutz vereinbar ist, wenn man eine Homepage hinter deren Proxy Server versteckt, deren Standorte in den USA liegen? Und wie muss Cloudflare in dem Fall in der Datenschutzerklärung angegeben sein?” kromonos

“Wir haben also eine „ethical hacker“ Zertifizierung von der NSA beworben und CloudFlare auf einer Seite. Was sagt uns das also über CloudFlare aus? Für mich persönlich sieht das so aus, als würde CloudFlare die Daten direkt zur NSA weiter leiten” kromonos

“Das Linux Magazin nennt die Nutzung der CloudFlare Reverse-Proxy Server als CDN ... Wenn das CDN ist, was ist dann das Ausliefern einzelner Dateien über einen extra Server? CloudFlare kann echt bald von jedem ein Bewegungsprofil erstellen, dagegen sind die Fahrzeuge von Google Maps ein scheiß” kromonos

“Lustig, wie selbst INWX in ihren Datenschutzerklärungen in keinster Weise CloudFlare erwähnt.” kromonos

“It’s because cloudflare actively spies on traffic going through it, so any service connected to it is compromised by default. Even if the service itself is well-meaning and wants to respect privacy, just having cloudflare there ruins all of it.” OTheB

“Cloudflare had a unchecked regex expression they rolled out to live service without testing and it broke half the Internet.” Bluedepth

“Wenn ich mir die Möglichkeiten ansehe, die ich mit nginx habe, Log Dateien zu schreiben, läuft mir echt ein eiskalter Schauer über den Rücken,weil ich mir ausmalen kann,welchen Preis Besucher von Webseiten hinter Cloudflare Proxy Servern bezahlen. Wenn ich das ganze dann hoch rechne...Die könnten ein komplettes bewegungsprofil eines jeden erstellen. Und Google wird durch das Captcha direkt mit gefüttert. Ich als Anbieter könnte echt nicht mit dem Gewissen leben,meine Besucher so zu verkaufen” kromonos

“Mit “Serverstandort Deutschland” zu werben, nutzt einen scheißdreck, wenn man den Server hinter den USA Proxys von CloudFlare versteckt.” kromonos

“Really disappointed and a little disgusted by the Matrix team. Putting Cloudflare spyware on their main instance, forcing every user to either go through the malicious wall or to use a homeserver that doesn’t federate with thus cutting itself off from just about everything. Will be giving XMPP a go today. Wonder if that community has even the tiniest bit of respect for users.” OTheB

“Even the main instance uses Cloudflare. New users will probably just use the main instance for convenience.” RMW

“I use to think it was cool that you can pay a little bit and have your own instance but it sucks that they put every instance behind Cloudflare.” amolith

“Don’t laugh when cloudflare says “the network is the computer.” They mean surveillance and they mean the surveillance goes all the way to the endpoints. Boycott them and their nefarious agenda.” roy

“I think I’ve found an alternative to Cloudflare Liberapay. I’m going to set Fosspay up this evening and start replacing Liberapay links on my website” amolith

“All I want is a privacy respecting messaging platform that does group conversations and voice chat, does that really have to be a big ask? Been really put off Matrix with the Cloudflare bullshit and their attitude towards it. There are whole papers on the issues with it. When will this fucking nightmare end? I need suggestions. What things do other people use for this stuff?” OTheB

“Hi pixelfed! You just added a mandatory Cloudflare ajax service to The page is empty now...” antonlopez

“Ich nutz hauptsächlich Tor. Zwar heuchelt Cloudflare Tor-Freundlich zu sein, z.B. mit eigener Onion Adresse. Aber standardmäßig blocken die Tor Verbindungen, sofern man sie nicht freigibt. Zudem empfinde ich es nicht gerade als Datenschutzfreundlich, die Cloudflare Proxy Server zu nutzen. Vor allem, da Cloudflare dem Patriot Act untersteht.” kromonos

“außerdem empfinde ich persönlich es als Wohltuend, wenn die CloudFlare Fanboys mal genauso auf ein Forbidden stoßen, wie TOR User all zu gern bei CloudFlare” kromonos

“I think that I will stop using it, until they remove it from Cloudflare. I don’t see it as something that is made for privacy if it decides to use Cloudflare for their main instance.” Robin

“angesprochen sollten auch nur jene werden, die keine Ahnung haben, aber dann so tun, als hätten sie sie. IT Blogger, die Anleitungen dazu bringen, wie man die Tor Exit Knoten Liste herunter lädt um die IP Adressen dann zu blockieren. Weil CloudFlare ja gesagt hat. Und jene, die keine Ahnung haben ... denen ist die Meinung der wirklichen Experten scheiß egal. Die lauschen lieber auf jene, die mit ihrem gefährlichen Halbwissen das Internet verpesten.” kromonos

“Hyperbola members who don’t care about Cloudflare, which disrepect the privacy over violation of rule 3 of the social contract” HarvettFox96

“Remember how the liars at cloudflare pretended that had come under attack (causing major downtime), only later to admit that they broke their own service because they’re technically incompetent. Avoid them.” schestowitz

“They talk about “#decentralization”, while being behind cloudflare. awesome” selea

“It’s been estimated that today’s Cloudflare outage is effecting about 10% of all websites world-wide. If a lot of your online world is down right now, your word and research topic for the day is decentralization” raye

“Qué es Cloudflare, cómo funciona y por qué cuando “se cae” parte de internet se viene abajo” GeekTale

“Вчера упал CloudFlare, из-за чего нарушилась работа крупнейших сервисов Интернета. Разработчики уже выпустили пост-мортем, из которого следует, что причиной падения стало – внимание – регулярное выражение, вызвавшее 100% нагрузку на CPU и, вследствие чего, множество 502-х ошибок в ответ на запросы.” Groosha

“Why you shouldn’t use services like Cloudflare to enable „high availability“ " f2k1de

“LMAO cloudflare is down AGAIN?” DashEquals

“Natürlich bezahlst du nichts, dafür aber deine Besucher, die all ihre Daten und Metadaten einem in den USA durch den PatriotAct verpflichteten Dienst in den Rachen werfen. Noch dazu ein Dienst, der auf den meisten Seiten Tor blockiert. Fehler hin oder her ... Wer Datenschutz ernst nimmt, verzichtet auf Cloudflare und ähnliche Dienste. Und wer doch einen Proxy vor seinem eigentlichen Dienst brauch, kann ihn ja selbst aufsetzen.” kromonos
