 Replying to [comment:215 jgrahamc]:
 > CloudFlare already does that for sites that are under DDoS (under some
 circumstances) but it doesn't really make sense here. The Tor network
 isn't a source of DDoS for us, it's a source of all sorts of other abuse
 (see above).

 Indeed, that's actually the source of my question. I imagine the
 classification of requests that are participating in a DDoS is somehow
 different from that of requests participating in other kinds of abuse. If
 you could shed some light on how it is so, I would be very grateful.

 (I have a few guesses, but obviously I'd love to avoid speculating if I
 can avoid it.)
