 The arguments made for delivering the contents via onion services were
 sound as well. If Facebook can do it why shouldn't you?

 On the R/O mode I'm mostly opposed to working on it because I've got X
 engineering resources and I'd rather spend them on a solution that allows
 legitimate Tor users 'normal' access to the web and not some special mode.
 I think Tor users are better off and CloudFlare a stronger company if I do

 We've debating internally offering .onion addresses to our customers
 and/or running exit nodes just for our customer base. Currently there's no
 work happening on this but neither are out of the question (they've just
 tended to get prioritized far down the list).
