Hello,
I've been using Power Query for a couple years to pull data from a website that has now suddenly gone to Cloudflare for DDOS attacks. Of course this has broken my web queries because when you go to a cloudflare protected website, it analyzes your browser for about 5 seconds and then continues to the site. When Power Query tries to connect it just hits a 503 "can't connect" error while it's doing this browser analysis. Has anyone ran into this before? Is there a workaround for this in Power Query, like some sort of delay before it tries to connect?

Thanks for any help
