> Fishy CloudFlare....

Noting some things others have said...

1) Two faced CEO declares to be fighting for "free speech",
yet goes anti and shuts down those like DS whose users
speak unbelievable nonsense about CF, yet is freespeech.
EFF and many others condemned this censorship.
Censorship is rapidly spreading in part due to CF's choice.
2) Breaks e2e encryption by MITM browser and website.
Everything you do with such "TLS" website is MITM'd by a
secret closed entity you have no explicit reason to trust
with your data.
2a) The list of entities in history that have been able to resist
datamining such a global trove, and further resist selling /
giving / renting / cracking / leaking / partnering / surveilling /
spying / manipulating / social mind controlling / court ordering /
etc it all away... is approximately zero.
3) Premeditatively chose to do 2 / 2a as a profit business model.
4) CF's [pre] history loves partnering with law enforcement.
5) Todays such "partnering" is often doublespeak for
secret surveillance fuckery against peoples.
6) Involved against what some say are victimless paper
issues of copyright trademark etc via historical partners.
7) Set the CF defaults to block torizens, requiring websites
to manually configure CF to accept torizens and their
perfectly good revenue, content, etc. Torizens lost much
time in their quest to exist and participate with the rest
as human beings.
8) CloudBleed
9) ...

While the individual techy projects of these megacorps may be
interesting, advanced, useful, and even pro to whatever some
segments might believe in, that does not excuse the responsibility
of the internet to constantly examine and call out what
they're doing in other areas.

Example in some investigations, balance checks, and backlash
against them starting to rise up, ie: Facebook and others taking
heat now for various things.




Wait till someone says "Hey Tor and its DA's are secretly our people".

[Or whichever sueable / persecutable / censorable / arrestable
hardly distributed network they choose to sink.]

That day is coming... become unsinkable.
