Comment (by akrey):

 Cloudflare is not a man in the middle. Cloudflare is authorized to provide
 the SSL termination for origin, by origin.

 Do you say that tbb should block sites because their internal setup is
 insecure (and yes, cloudflare ''is'' part of that 'internal setup')?

 Should tbb also block sites that run on rented cloud machinery, because
 they are inherently insecure, and subvertible by the hosting companies?

 Should tbb also block google-analytics, for obvious reasons?
