I don't say much on Tor-Talk, but I will say this:

Thanks, Medium, for removing all those CloudFlare captchas for Tor
users. As an activist from East Africa once reminded me, the Internet
means *all* of the Internet. Otherwise it isn't quite itself--it is
meant to be accessible and comprehensive; a nearly inexhaustible catalog
of the world.

Thank you for helping out.

Huh? Did I miss something? As of late, I haven't noticed CF captchas disappeared, or worked any better in Tor Browser.
Are you talking about a special case?

Sometimes, in Firefox on the same site I may not get any captcha, a few minutes after trying a couple of times in TBB. If it's a trustworthy site (if there's such a thing) & JS is allowed for all necessary 3rd parties on the site, the captchas will either work in the 1st 1 or 2 tries in TBB, or they won't at all. And in Firefox, where I have a lot of blocking addons, it almost always works w/ JS allowed on just the base domain.
