 > In other words, you're happy to overblock Tor because IP blocks are just
 so convenient? probably also because as far as cloudflare is concerned, we
 just don't matter. I don't understand why you (or jgrahamc) bother with
 this discussion anyway. what's in it for you?

 As I understand it, they are worried that the Tor project does something
 about it. In order to win time before this actually happens, they keep
 claiming they are Tor supporters, working on it, we're in contact with Tor
 devs, things will improve really soon, bla bla bla ... I think it's clear
 now that it's not the case.

 If they said fuck tor and blocked everything, they know there would be
 some quick reaction. With this strategy of keeping the service minimal,
 while engaging in discussions to give the impression they care, the Tor
 users are effectively blocked for a longer period of time.

 I think it's time the Tor project does something to solve this without CF.
 Giving the user an option to be redirected to the archive.org or
 startpage.com proxy when facing a CF page sounds good as a first step.
