[liberationtech] Cloudflare - Any experience with the service?

I stumbled upon CloudFlare a few weeks ago and it sounds really great!

Its not only a *free* CDN but also a kind of Cloud-firewall which is 
supposed to filter all the bad stuff like DDoS attacks, SQL injections 
and even comment spam. If you do it right it is not possible for a third 
party to know where your server actually is (LulzSec did it wrong, 
apparently:

I didn't have the time to test it though.

A good reference might be http://lulzsecurity.com/. They seem very happy 
about the service: https://twitter.com/#!/LulzSec/status/76542537078284288

There is also a blogpost "On LulzSec, Censorship & CloudFlare":

Best,
