What every person in the Philippines goes through.

CloudFlare is a content delivery network that is responsible for 90% of ED's and EDF's downtime, the other 10% being Mike Sandy.


This is because Steve Jobs is dead.

It uses amazing new technology to spread the load between servers, its futuristic intrusion detection systems are only comparable to those of Norton's users'. The paid version includes such amazing features as sanitizing user input and a feature called "EASIEST SSL EVAR". The pro features also include the advanced threat challenge page and traffic statistics updated every 15 minutes as opposed to 24 hours.

Clearly for computer gurus.

DDoS and h4x

Many a internet h4x0rs have threatened to DDoS ED with ping -f, but they fail to understand that their efforts are actually preferable to CloudFlare's regular behavior.

Yet another brave warrior to achieve great success in the field of hacking is Kevin Provance, who worked hard enough to actually get some attention with his mischevious shenanigans.

Brandt and CloudFlare

Other notable example of CloudFlare thwarting e-detective aspierations are Daniel Brandt's sad attempts at forensics, which apparently revealed that ED is based in Ukraine and Sweden, which led him to a failed attempt at doxing the sysops. with random ips from the cloud being identified as current ED's hosting providers and lulzy non-dox provided with great expertese. This in turn led him to dispute the TOS with CloudFlare in relation to LulzSec's activities, with his demands and accusations reasonably refuted:

It's interesting to have public enemy number one using our service but it is important to note that we are not the hosting provider; we're much more similar to something like a network provider where traffic is passing through us and we're not actually storing any of the data. Importantly, if we were to kick them off of our network that wouldn't take the content off the Internet it would just be a little bit slower.


—CloudFlare's spokesperson, telling him to chill out.

Being a reasonable person he let the case go and moved on with his life, but not before sending yet another inquiry, this time asking whether they have ever enforced their own TOS, to which they responded:

We are not a web host and we don't censor content on the internet.

Even if we remove a site from CloudFlare it doesn't remove the content from the internet in any way, shape, or form.When a complaint comes in we provide the direct IP to the site in question so that the person with the complaint can take their complaint directly to the web host of the site -- the only people who can ACTUALLY remove the site and its content from the internet. We comply with every complaint that we receive.
