API is useless due to CloudFare
Recently, the website started using CloudFare as an anti DDOS and Captcha as a measure of security, but this is also applied to the XML API endpoints.

When making an HTTP request to the API outside a Browser, all that gets returned is the CloudFare HTML website for a captcha, this has been tested to happen on cURL via `curl\?page\=dapi\&s\=post\&q\=index`, python's AIOHttp lib, and Rust's Reqwest lib.

Please, fix the CloudFare settings so dapi is not included by it, because currently they are effectively useless; if DOS protection is still wanted, add rate limits to them.
