 Well no not really. Cloudflare is fundamentally the *wrong* solution for
 security, because it is about putting a bubble around broken and
 web sites. This is easier than fixing the actual problems so it is

 This is quite apart from what might be the *right* use of Cloudflare or
 CDNs (modulo surveillance) which is efficiently delivering data from as
 to the edge as possible, and coincidentally being able to sink volumetric
 DDoS attacks.

 The problems with Tor arise, near as I can tell, almost exclusive from the
 former. It's just bad architecture.
