 Not all people read long TOS. You can find many people who didn't realize
 how Cloudflare works in technical way, JUST LIKE YOU.
 "And website users" is incorrect. Not all websites have TOS. For example,
 this trac.torproject.org. Where's TOS? I didn't agree to anything!
 Another problem is I did not allow Cloudflare to read anything. They are
 silently standing between me and website owner, who signed up CF for FREE,
 $0, COMODO HTTPS certificate.
 WhatTheFuckEver, by Wikipedia's DEFINITION, this is clearly called "MITM
 Don't like it? Edit Wikipedia.
