When browsing and searching
tor.stackexchange.com I found myself hitting the Cloudflare wall and also infrequently having to select pictures of salad to identify myself as a person and not a robot. What if I am indeed a robot? Isn't that discriminatory?
All joking aside, isn't there some quantity of irony here that a Stack Exchange site revolving around the use of Tor and the Tor browser bundle constantly has its security mechanisms tripped if you use said software to access the site?
Also, I just got a warning that I could only post once a day "due to spam coming from my network." Seriously? Like, seriously?
I understand that Cloudflare may offer the site operators uptime and security defenses, but due to the number of complaints/questions on this Stack Exchange dealing with Cloudflare's broken CAPTCHAs, something I came here to investigate as well, I don't think that is good form.
For those who haven't realized it yet, you can generate a new circuit to get through to the site, since the offending thing is an IP and the new circuit gives you a new IP to the Cloudflare site. I have only gotten through 1 or 2 Cloudflare CAPTCHAs and been presented with many and wound up giving up on going to the site. Some people claim that it requires scripts from Google, maybe that's why I never got it to work.
