    1. Where such denial-of-service conditions occur, Cloudflare provides a bizarre “one more step” page inviting the visitor to complete a reCAPTCHA to access the site. Cloudflare claims that this is based on IP reputation, which constitutes a fallacious equivocation of IPs and users which has been found to be highly detrimental to Tor users in terms of the browseability of the web.

      This is a good critique of Cloudflare CAPTCHAs. They are especially annoying when using a VPN (I use Mullvad) or unusual browser configurations. I wrote about how the Wayback Machine provides a good end-around the CAPTCHA deluge for pages which have been captured.
