 I'm not the author, never claimed so. Below the image was a link to the
 source, @sheetal57, now it's above.
 It's a good idea, that script should run periodically. However, I'd not
 disclose the code in order to avoid fingerpriting by CloudFlare. If the
 target list & sequence & timing are fixed in the code, it'd be easy for CF
 to make false positives, i.e. pass no captchas to script bot + a few tor
 users who happen to access target domain in the same timeslot as the
 script. It'd need proper randomization first. If you write to @sheetal57,
 tell her please.
