Re: [tor-talk] Accessing Cloudflare sites on TBB
The meeting happened. I led with other issues (things we could do for
them), which was declined due too low revenue add. And I wasn't able to get
to the captcha request.
For what it's worth, on a personal level, the management claims to be
decidedly pro-Tor. So if it's not a lot of work to make us happy I see them
supporting it. Given the "everything else being equal, we want to support
Tor" view from management, the issues seem to be:
(1) finding the right person in CloudFlare to field each request. I.e., if
we knew the email address of the person handling the abuse captchas we
could go straight to them and make things easier. This sounds like a job
for someone to go sleuthing on LinkedIn or asking friends at CloudFlare the
right person to ping for each request.
(2) Apparently some parts of CloudFlare's infrastructure (unclear which)
make catering to Tor users difficult. For these, it's unlikely we're likely
to make progress until there's a solid business/PR case for accommodating
Next steps: I would aim for (1) as well as aim getting a few CloudFlare
employees to casually volunteer for Tor things. That will do a lot for
making CloudFlare employees aware of Tor needs.
