 This is but one example of how cloudflare breaks the web, and of the
 insight behind '__bots are people too__'. It's been said above: we humans
 don't make HTTP requests, our machines to do it for us.

 Need more reason to dislike cloudflare? How about their across-the-board
 HTTPS man-in-the-middle? Look for the paper "When HTTPS meets CDN".
