    Was reading a great thread about cloudfare and how they are fighting a court battle because a domain that used CloudFare (MP3Skulls - never heard of it) keeps rerouting their domains while staying up on the internet after a 22 million dollar settlement along with MP3 supposedly handing over the domain - which isn't working for the plaintiff.
    I know a favorite site of mine VOAT.CO, a reddit alt site, used use Cloudfare because of all the DDOS attacks they were receiving after they split from Reddit.
    Just thought it was an interesting case - they hold that pulling down sites based on keywords or IP addresses isn't fair/legal/right, but they do feel under a court injunction they would bring down a domain.
