Inside scoop from Cloudflare office, Matthew Prince and John Graham-Cumming talking:

“- How can we market George Floyd’s death so people hear some more of Cloudflare and we can nag them with our captchas even more while MitM-ing all the traffic?”

“- I know, let’s do a blog post about how the number of cyberattack HTTP requests blocked! That will show them! All hail the Silicon Valley overlords!”

And a blog post was born (blog.cloudflare.com/cyberattacks-since-the-murder-of-george-floyd) and a submission to Orange News came normally afterwards. I’m not linking to the actual Cloudflare blog post because I’m against linking to cancerous companies.

Idiots.
