Wis.Community is a member of LION publishers. We receive multiple benefits from this, one of which is receiving full coverage with Cloudflare for our site. This protects the site from DDOS attacks and hackers, and improves the site performance. This should work out great, but we are currently tuning some of the parameters for the web firewall. This is mostly done, but you may find that when you put in a comment or content on the site that you will receive a CAPTCHA challenge - just click on the box to indicate that you are a human and you should be fine.  At the moment I believe I have gotten the rules tuned to make this stop happening, but it's always possible there are still a few bugs in the system.

Update -- I've also leveraged some of  the new Cloudflare features we now have available to attempt to increase the performance of the site by doing a lot more caching at the edge of the Internet, and to do a little more security blocking.  We'll see how that goes.
