You're right for most of the above points, I like cloudflare to do almost application level stuff (eg. domain redirect codewithhugo.com/the-step-by-step-...) and to be able to set caching policy for assets (GH pages doesn't allow that).
It's not crucial but it's been quite useful to get some stuff done.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
