Cloudflare sucks, I hate them with a passion

Actually, CloudFlare is a very good CDN.

When they stop using bot detection scripts apparently written by halfwit interns I'll jump on that bandwagon with you. And the mass blacklisting of ip blocks doesn't = security. At best it minimizes some bot traffic.

I started seeing those captchas last week through various european servers when hunting for the odd match streams and besides being annoying they didn't go away when browsing in incognito mode.

The captchas on NL servers when accessing Cloudflare-protected sites were nearly unreadable up to about a week or two ago.  I had to resort to using the audio option.

Now at least the captchas are back to numbers on street signs.

If I solve the captcha that enables a tracking cookie right?  Then if I flush my cookies afterwards i'm back to square one?  Or does it do something more than just enable a tracking cookie?  Thx

Those captchas are incredibly annoying for anything automated and break a lot of stuff. Even without any VPN at all their ungodly "Please wait 5 seconds while we do our awesome DDOS-Protection and Browser-Check yadayada" makes me hate them so much because it messes up RSS fetching for some sites I monitor. Seems like they imply that every HTTP request is always initiated by a human being using a javascript-capable browser. Got to love them for that.

I wonder how all the other CDNs are able to do their work without any of this nonsense.

Apologies for bumping an old thread, but it seemed preferable to starting a new one.

 

I've been using AirVPN for several months now and have just started having this issue for the first time today; is there a recommended solution besides connecting to a different server? Is it a problem that should be logged somewhere when it happens?

 

If it's helpful, I was connected to Subra when I started seeing the captchas. I've reconnected to a different server and everything seems fine now.
