Re: [HN] Cloudflare Reverse Proxies Are Dumping Uninitialized Memory
Ps. Portals (AOL etc) & dDos prevention sites like Cloudflare, Akmai
(etc) intrinsically defeat the purpose of 'distributed networking'
TCP/IP was designed for! Suckers. If you were on Arpanet you'd still
have distributed networking. But they can't allow that sort of
freedom-of-information-transfer now can they... Citizen?
