    I say stay away from CloudFlare and all their services.

    * Crimeflare
    * Criticism of total content neutrality
    * Cloudflare’s 1.1.1.1 DNS Does Nothing for Privacy

    There are more links which I can provide because I'm watching them since the beginning. Basically what CloudFlare does is trhat they pickup comments from other people and then they trying to "make it better", they changed the well known and trusted crypto systems and replaced it with lava lamps. Which they say improves security, which I highly doubt, that if you touch well known crypto systems because you're think you#re smarter than everyone often ends up with desasters, the best example is telegram.

    That MDL uses cloudflare now and that they use reCAPTCHA is imho a no-go because this is explicity designed to track and identify you, I really expected more from Daz than make his life easier by using a closed source system and trust randomly Cloudflare with our data. I expected instead to see the well known open sources self-hosted alternatives. Cloudflare basically tries to aim like Google and you simply can't trust or take them serious. I predict it won#t take long until there is a CloudFlare VPN service, they already try to take over DNSCrypt so that they might get control over it. However not everything they do is bad (same like Google etc) but it's questional why you not simply self-host or use open source systems in order to gain users trust and increase the change to identify possible security related problems faster.
