Stop Using Cloudflare

1. It is a GIANT man in the middle - MITM.
2. Their DDOS protection is not that good.
3. You are contributing to a centralized Internet.

@selea it would be interesting if there was a better equivalent service. I have a BBS with a Web front end that I'm forced to use CF with to front end it to block shitty bots, and I have to have the security settings really high. For DNS I use but started to look at to favour EU solutions over US conglomerates



How can you use Cloudflare without using their DNS-service?

You could just actually block all bots, or manually block the malicious ones.

@selea I have to use their DNS for the BBS domain. Manually I don't really have time for, and that's not even counting all the ones that smash the telnet ports. That's why I'm stuck with cloud flare to be harsh on Web users, it's rather good at it even though as a whole it's unsavory
