cloudflare vs. Vivaldi website & forum
This has been a long-standing issue that is still not resolved.
It is simply not ok, that the global and powerful anti-privacy and anti-freedom MITM piece of crap (that some people call "cloudflare"), is being used (and therefore supported!) by the Vivaldi team.
Not ok especially for a website that represents a browser such as Vivaldi, the team of which have been showing that they are concerned about the huge problem of the monopoly of corporations, privacy issues, and the privacy of their users.
This is just a strong contradiction!
Vivaldi, i don't want to think that in this case you have "traded privacy over convenience" (quote from one of the articles linked below), but at least this is how it might look, and it is sad to see that you still haven't stopped using it.
(Ah, yeah, the cherry on the cake, Vivaldi websites are completely unusable when browsing them via Tor network, which turns the use of cloudflare into a kinda disrespect to the Tor network users and their wish to use Vivaldi website and talk on the Vivaldi forum, while NOT having to disconnect from Tor).
Many websites out there run well without using this evil.
It is critical to find a solution and fix this huge issue by stopping using cloudflare for your websites or replacing it with an alternative non-cloudflare (and non-CDN generally) anti-spam solution.
I will just leave these links here:
I hope Vivaldi team will finally make the good move in the near future.
Bug report VIV-836 (reported almost 1 year ago).
PS: some day in the future I will switch to the Tor network entirely, and all my browsers' traffic will be going only via this network, which means i will have to blacklist all websites that don't respect Tor users (this automatically includes all websites that use the cloudflare evil), and i really hope Vivaldi sites won't be in that list.

@Agych Pls kindly furnish some objective non-hysterical linked references to assist me understand your apparent disdain for CF. I ask only as a mere private end-user of V [as my default browser] & CF [via DoH in my FF-Nightly, & DoT in my
systemd-resolved]. If CF are genuinely problematic as you seem to opine, then it would be nice to understand cogent lucid factual evidence-based explanations, otherwise...

Although I recognized that cloudflare's policy is against channels that are labled "right-wing" and by pulling down some of them seems to be against free speech,
I left Cloudflare together with my former provider Siteground because of other reasons before that info had reached me.
And since my website is hosted from WebGo, it is faster without CDN than with Cloudflare before.
My conclusion is that Cloudflare isn't the best solution, when even in Germany where internet-speed isn't that good as in bulgaria, a webhost can surpass it.
