Comment (by cypherpunks):

 How nice it is for CloudFlare to work with us, thank you very much. It's
 nice to have a global active adversary that listens to us. One has to
 wonder for how long this will last, perhaps a few years, perhaps a decade?
 How long will it be until CloudFlare is eaten by the bigger fish, or
 bought out by a company like Google? Money trading hands decides our fate
 here, we'd be fools to think we can fix this.

 The facts are that online we have authorities like Wikipedia, Gutenberg,
 CloudFlare, Google that decide what we can read or write based on what
 information we give. How did we even get to this point? We need to
 drastically change this structure, and we need to do it before things get
 worse. Not by asking, but by doing with or without permission.

 To throw an idea out, let's mirror popular sites (Wikipedia, Gutenberg,
 news sites behind CloudFlare) using scraping tools and integrate our own
 GET cache using Tor Browser using IPFS or something similar.
