@Niquarl both & are -abusing sites. And worse, CF is a centralized abuser which undermines the decentralization hopes to achieve. I would not donate until they move off @Liberapay & Patreon.

@aktivismoEstasMiaLuo Please stop spamming us and our users with unsubstantiated accusations against Cloudflare. It's annoying and you're not convincing anyone.

@Niquarl

@aktivismoEstasMiaLuo Your first link confirms that your claims aren't substantiated: “This is not, of course, evidence or proof.”

Your other links aren't any better. Two of them are from 2016 and are at least partially obsolete.

@Niquarl

@Liberapay @Niquarl I never made the claim that the US gov. has 's view of the data, so I have no need to substantiate the US role. My claim that CF centralizes the web is well-substantiated in those articles. What does CF do differently after 2016 that you believe supports decentralization & ?

@aktivismoEstasMiaLuo You claimed that CF violates privacy, but you haven't provided any evidence that they're collecting and sharing private data.

Net neutrality isn't very relevant since CF isn't a consumer ISP. You haven't explained how CF “works against” net neutrality.

Complaining that CF “centralizes” the web is basically the same as complaining that they're doing their job too well and have too many customers.

@Niquarl

@Liberapay @Niquarl CloudFlare attacks users. Attacks on Tor users are an attack on . This constrains the Tor userbase. CloudFlare is also a MitM who charges no fee to a vast majority of its users-- this is how surveillance capitalism works. Millions of accounts were compromised in , an artifact of lg.scale centralisation coupled w/a MitM.

@aktivismoEstasMiaLuo CF doesn't attack Tor users. In fact they've repeatedly tried to improve their service for Tor users: blog.cloudflare.com/cloudflare and blog.cloudflare.com/cloudflare

CF also allows website admins to choose whether requests coming through Tor should be challenged or not.

You haven't provided any evidence that CF is involved in surveillance. The fact that a company provides some services for free doesn't prove anything other than this: they're trying to attract new users.

@Liberapay "CF also allows website admins.." It's 's default setting that has put them in a position of abusing & . If they had a different default setting they would legitimately be able to point the finger to web admins (most of whome have little clue about how CF works or what Tor is)

@Liberapay Also, your positive claim that CF is not looking at the traffic, not using that data, and not allowing the US to snoop is simply naive. Without proof either way, it's ignorant to extend trust to a corporate tech giant particularly when they lie regularly, like Trump. To be a money service that's so cavalier with trust shows how absolutely reckless your operation is.

@aktivismoEstasMiaLuo I'm not aware of CF having ever lied or done anything else that would justify distrusting them as much as you do.

Your repeated claim that it's particularly dangerous to use CF for financial services doesn't make much sense. They're obviously not going to steal money from people, so I don't know what you're worried about.

If using CF is “reckless”, then every significant platform similar to ours is reckless, including Patreon and Open Collective.

@Liberapay I think I've only ever encountered one bank foolish enough to use .

, , & all expect donors to set aside ethics and make a charitable donation, one that gives their financial data to web's most notorious & abuser. Of course it's reckless.

@Liberapay Many projects using , , & have privacy, decentralization, or netneutrality as their projects mission goal. It's a total hypocrisy that they direct their donors to patronize an adversary of the cause people are donating to support.
