Interesting. I follow, via RSS of course, exactly one Medium blog that’s now gone CAPTCHA on my feed aggregator (or rather, cURL). Maybe they should clarify, like, “We’ve found you’re using a machine to try and download a feed intended for machines.” No? *unfollows*
(I mean, they might really be under attack. Maybe I should give it a couple days.)
@sexybiggetje Hehe, probably, although I use them, too. (I mean, I’m just a hobbyist with limited time and resources. I’ll think about it! One day.)
They literally centralise the internet to a single point of failure. And they've proven multiple times to break the internet. If you're on mastodon that hardly rhymz with using cloudflare. Just saying 😂
@sexybiggetje I know. (They cache/serve this instance’s media requests, though, which for me means cheaper [€0, actually, for now] storage. 😃)
