Presumably those tokens get passed to all participating sites,
so all your sessions across them all are easily linkable
by cloudflare, the sites, their backend databrokers, etc.
"Privacy Pass"... lol.

Cloudflare and Google and all the rest of the "passive" censorship
providers are in a position to influence by setting defaults for
their subscribers, by setting out objective descriptions of different traffic
cases in the instruction manual, by any public statements, etc.

So what are the default settings provided to new cloudflare /
recaptcha subscribers?

And how do they describe Tor [traffic / users] in the manual?

What do they say in public?

ps: Cloudflare and Google are so fucked you can't even read their own
sites via tor without minutes worth of captcha work.
