Cloudflare (also known as Crimeflare and Cuckflare) is an American botnet disguised as an affordable reverse-proxy and DDoS-mitigation service. Its business model consists of a campaign of intimidation of DDoS attacks against website administrators, against which, suspiciously, only Cloudflare's protection service is effective. The army of servers is kept well-fed by a steady stream of racket sales. Thus the botnet grows, kind of like homosexuals.

The Man in the middle[edit | edit source]
Cloudflare-protected servers are instanced across a vast content-delivery-network, with visitors never interacting with the real server. The unencrypted contents of user's interaction are entirely handled by Cloudflare.
For a site to use cloudflare, the owner has to point their DNS records to cloudflare's servers, at which point they effectively handed cloudflare full control of their website (as long as the DNS records point to cloudflare's servers). ... However, this is not a Man-in-the-Middle attack, because the website owner gave cloudflare permission to do all of this. So it's not an attack, it's a secure connection to cloudflare (who the website owner gave permission to serve content at their domain name).

This is functionally a man-in-the-middle attack, but it's passively accepted as a fact of using the internet at this point. From hosting your bank's website to soyjak.party, Crimeflare dominates the CDN market with an 80% share, essentially performing a man-in-the-middle-attack on all of the internet. Some have pointed out the colossal datamining potential of such a position, but the argument loses ground when verified fact-checkers revealed the proponents are dangerous, unmedicated conspiracy theorists.

Soot enabled Cloudflare in an attempt to stop Colorjak, CP and other types of spam. At first it was accepted, even with some users starting to defend the decision, calling all the Cloudflare detractors as spammers but it quickly became an annoyance to most users as cloudflare requires you to refresh the page every five minutes. Higher protection modes also block archive sites from taking snapshots.
