Way to by pass Tor Browser hostile web sites

It is really a form of anti-Net Neutrality for web sites, most notably web hosting sites like CloudFlare, to discriminate Tor Browser users by putting all sort of childish barrier in an attempt to prevent Tor Browser users from gaining access to the materials.

Perhaps by comparison, CloudFlare is not as anti-Tor as Akamai which simply greeds Tor users with 404.

It is an easy way out to treat all Tor Browser users in the same boat as those using the tool to abuse the system. If that kind of thinking prevails, may be we should all shut down the Internet as not a day gone by without seeing an attack being carried out on the Internet. Any other way would require intelligence that they have not got and it is also a good sales material of telling their customers that they could block all those abusers using Tor.

Thankfully, there is a way to get past playing their childish game. I simply route the access through Start Page's proxy from Tor Browser. Just do a search on the link from Tor Browser and then uses the proxy to access it.
