 reputation. It's one way web sites deal with abuse (sometimes it's super-
 manual: web site admins look at logs and restrict certain IPs). No plan to
 ditch IP reputation, but CloudFlare likes to make continuous improvements
 and I think this is an area where we can do that.
 > I think this is very short-sighted. The future is Carrier-grade NAT and
 IPv6. Both makes IP reputation highly impractical. Or maybe you have a
 fancy solution. I'd be curious to hear about it!

 The future is IPv6 not CGN. Really major ISPs are making a massive push to
 IPv6 as are mobile carriers.

 We do have a fancy solution that we are working on, but I don't want to
 make a specific promise yet.
