Niche and friendly site for human being.

Where possible make sure your website works without Javascript, or at least use lightweight bundles. Instead of using Google’s NoCaptcha (difficult for Tor Users), use security questions or a simple captcha instead. Whitelist Tor Exit IPs from your spam filter. Avoid using Cloudflare’s reverse proxy (DNS is fine for now), many web hosting providers (Hetzner, Scaleway, OVH, BuyVM, etc) already filter out DDoS Attacks for you. The speedboosts from Cloudflare’s CDN are minimal when you are conservative with media sizes and the amount of assets you serve. (You can even serve Bootstrap CSS and stuff from https://www.jsdelivr.com/ so it’s not a bandwidth issue!).
