Yes. If I see CloudFlare's notice to enable Javascript, I just close the tab. I've also reached the point where if I see "Attention Required! Please complete this captcha," I'll just close the tab anyways, even though I could access the content without enabling javascript. It's just not worth the trouble, especially for the ones where you have to click on pictures that contain X.

There's no way to get around it that I'm aware of. Just boycott those sites.

Half the articles linked on this site force you to captcha when you use tor.

Yeah, I usually skip over those. If it sounds really interesting, I'll see if it works when I paste the URL into archive.org, or otherwise ask for someone to copy-paste the text on Raddle.

Just avoid cloudsnare-enabled sites. If you really need to, use a tor bridge.

Tor bridges don't affect your exit IP address.

is it not possible to configure tor to use a bridge as an exit node?

No. Bridges are only used as the "first hop" in the Tor network. They aren't publicly listed, so that it is harder for ISPs and governments to block people from accessing the Tor network. Once their request has made it to the first hop, there is no need for the other nodes to be unlisted after that (in fact, it would be detrimental if they were).

Exit nodes are the "final hop" in the Tor network - they communicate directly with the website the user requested. Because so many people look up illegal things using Tor, exit node operators often face lawsuits, because the web traffic appears to be coming from them. That's why Tor only recommends running an exit node if you have a lawyer and are willing to go to court. Universities and rich people who care about Tor can do this, but ordinary people can't. If they made it so the end user could request for a bridge to turn into an exit node, without that person's permission, that would be horrible, especially if they end up getting sued.

First of all, the most important thing; Use the Tor Browser. If you're using regular Firefox with Tor as a proxy then Cloudflare will automatically offer you a captcha if your user-agent isn't that of the Tor Browser.

Secondly, if you do get a captcha after all try to use caching services if possible such as web.archive.org/save/ and archive.fo.

Thirdly, you can also use online proxies such as kproxy.com

Hope this helps a bit.
