 A partial fix similar to Yawning's CFC extension might be an extension to
 provide a mailto: link to contact the website's operator based upon whois
 information.  A mailto: link goes through the user's own email program, so
 it's likely to be read and allow discussion.

 Also, mailto: links can provide initial text that explains the problem.
 This could mention that CloudFlare's upmarket competitors like Akamai see
 no problem with Tor users.
