Most probably, that means that the company doesn't have any counter
abuse process whatsoever for requests like yours, so no matter where
you push that, there won't be any action.

Having said that, the aforementioned form accepts "https[: slash
slash]" as a valid URL so chances are requests to that
URL are treated in the general sense.

In the meantime, are you sure you'll be able to support your case with
data?  DNS is *mostly* a connection-less protocol, so how do you know
these queries are coming from Cloudflare and not from a spoofed

Lastly, have you tried to block the problematic Cloudflare IP range to
see what would happen?  E.g. does still resolve your domains
then, etc.?
