So while visiting GZ today I got this dumb Cloudflare "Access Restricted" screen claiming that my device, or another on the same network (that network being "Telecom Mobile" so way outside my control) is infected with a virus or malware of some kind.  I know it's not my device, so it must be "another on my network" (remembering that "my network" is "everyone on Telecom 3G").

Is this really necessary?  It's a serious deterrent to using GZ if I'm going to be challenged to prove I'm human every blasted time which is what it claims it'll do.

So ever since the same thing occurred on my phone I can't access geekzone mobile. Is that related, or something entirely separate?
I backed out of the cloud flare authentication if that makes any difference. Just signed in to gz in the normal way.
How do I get mobile back? Full site is too much on a 4.7" screen.

Yes. Had tried the mobile link but for some reason itwouldn't stick. Toggled the browser settings a few times and finally it is using the m. site. Just thought there may have been some connection because it has worked faultlessly up until now.

On the subject of the m. site. Is there any chance the ads could go at the bottom of the page? My reason being I always seem to time pressing a link just as the page jumps down as the ad loads, and select the wrong link.
