 tactic instead of saying they block us outright and having customers
 leave. Fuck you Cloudflare.

 Since CF manages whitelisting as a hidden feature, we're gonna have to
 contact their customers directly. And inform them politely about
 whitelisting, or better, onionizing their service. I see no other option
 at this point. @jgrahamc stopped posting 3 weeks ago, the number of daily
 captchas does not sink, at least in my experience, and I don't believe in
 miraculous tesseracts, they only work until next generation of gropeware
 is released. CF and Google conduct a digital form of TSA's groping.

 The problem is how to deliver thousands of CF customers our informing
 email without getting that email globaly blacklisted within one
 microsecond :)
