What is Cloudflare?
Cloudflare protects and accelerates any website online. Once your website is a part of the Cloudflare community, its web traffic is routed through Cloudflare's intelligent global network. Cloudflare will automatically optimize the delivery of your web pages so your visitors get the fastest page load times and best performance. Cloudflare will also block threats and limit abusive bots and crawlers from wasting your bandwidth and server resources. The result: Cloudflare-powered websites see a significant improvement in performance and a decrease in spam and other attacks.

Popular. But risk of censorship.
Popular global content delivery network (CDN)
Both Cloudflare owner Matthew Prince and the Cloudflare administration, have an history of censoring people and organizations with views they disagree with. In other words, if Cloudflare disagree with your personal views, it is risky that they will censor you. In turn, your visitors will not be able to access your content.
Of course Cloudflare are really free to do business or not do business with anyone to their liking. While at the same time, if someone use a website owned by Cloudflare to make a call for violence, does that make Cloudflare themselves calling for violence, anti-semitism, neo-nazy? Of course not. Because the user's views and her/his subject matter and contents thereof, such as, but not limited to, text, media, or otherwise, do not necessarily reflect the views of the Cloudflare administration. How about the same thing the other way around for Cloudflare's clients?

Does wonders for website owners
HOWEVER - they have a VERY hypocritical love for censorship. They have voluntarily chosen to block access to multiple sites run by trolls and alleged right-wing extremists and yet they still host the websites that promote joining ISIL and discussions about killing white people
Holy shit! Why didn't I find this sooner?
Doesn't let me to connect to the websites I like.
I'm not using it myself. The websites I visit have it; Probably because of js blocker it doesn't allow me to connect.

Sadly Cloudflare filter client based on their IP Such as an example; I use a cheap ISP and all their IP are blacklisted so Cloudflare block me / ask me if I'm not a robot when I try to access I website protected by their system.
You could look if your IP is blacklisted by going to : https://bgp.he.net then click on your IP and select the RBL tab
