What, the CloudFlare protection?

It's to protect against DDoS and bots.

I saw that and I know it might be necessary but it is still annoying.

Sadly, there's nothing that can be done. Cloudflare has done an incredible job at mitigating the constant DDoS attacks we've been getting. Yes, the mesage from CloudFlare may be annoying from time to time, but it's only the first time you enter the website.

There is literally nothing I can do about it. In the past week, the attack generated over 2TB of traffic with over half a billion requests, and hasn't shown any sign of slowing down.

Just an idea, find the ISP of the IP you are getting hit with and report it to the ISP. I am sure the ISP will take action as no one likes DDOS attacks.

Hundreds of thousands of IPs are attacking, which leads me to believe that either they're using a massive botnet or spoofing their source IPs.
