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*


(It’s not my server being rate limited. Same thing happens with command-line cURL from, e.g., my Pi at home. In fact, it’s not just feeds but HTML pages, too. Seems they somehow upped their Cloudflare “protection” level.)

(I mean, they might really be under attack. Maybe I should give it a couple days.)
