Yeah, even though it at least provides _a_ way to get to the content,
I'd just as soon not inconvenience people for no reason (and in fact,
avoiding CAPTCHAs is why I had initially lowered it from the default).

I dropped the setting in Cloudflare to "essentially off". Using
torbrowser I didn't get a CAPTCHA either before or after the setting, so
I have no idea if it actually changed anything. But hopefully it is
better for you now.

I also checked the settings for git-scm.org (same content, different
domain), which had accidentally been left at "medium". Those are now at
off, too.
