 Replying to [comment:72 ttr99]:
 > Now you can say the above example is contrived, or you only lost one
 customer which is not a lot, but it highlights that CF are using the wrong
 approach to solve the problem.  Right now this type of problem is not very
 big because the set of Tor users compared to clearnet users is small, so
 the lost bus.ness is again small, but I am sure Tor use is only going to
 grow over time, and the problem is only going to grow.  CF need to get
 ahead of the curve on this.

 Somehow I get the strong impression that CloudFlare's sabotage is driving
 novice users away from Tor, thereby "solving" said problem by ensuring
 that the number of casual Tor users remains comfortably low (the way the
 NSA wants it too).
