NEWB ALERT
« on: December 23, 2009, 03:57:25 PM »
I just recently started looking into using proxies after having my yahoo account screwed with by some jerk-offs.  I don't know who it is that is doing it... I'd say that they found me through my ex and have beef with me because of him.  I really don't know.  He's a hacker and has messed with ppl and gotten on pplz bad side, he's also had ex gfs who I don't even talk to that have probs with me.  So I suspect that it's related to him. Through out the time that I've known him (2 1/2 yrs) I've had like 3 yahoo accounts that have been hacked & deleted, and 3 myspaces that have been hacked and/or deleted.  I have lost accounts that I had for years.  It's pretty upsetting.  Esp. when you don't even know who is doing it or why...  >:(

ANYWAYS, that is why I started looking into using proxies... These assholes are hackers who make trojans, ddos, have botnets, lock ppls accounts, use password hackers, ect.  So I would really like to have my IP address secure.

So I kinda need some help figuring this stuff out.  So far I've got a jist of it...  Umm, I downloaded the Free Elite Proxy Switcher.  But I notice that it doesn't list the country, https, danger, ect.  I tried to find high-anonymity proxies, so the ones I have are all level 1. So I was using whatismyipaddress.com and I noticed that it had a blacklist checker.  So I checked to see if some of the proxies were on any blacklists, some were... So, here are some of my questions... what is with the blacklist?  Should I use an IP address on a blacklist?  Is it really necessary for me to use level 1 proxies? I noticed that some of them are CoDeeN... Which is a pain.  

I also don't know what socks is either.... so if you could fill me in on that, I'd appreciate it.

Just tell me what you recommend for me to do.  Thanx  :)

what is with the blacklist
Some email server will discard the emails sent from the IPs that are on the blacklist.

Should I use an IP address on a blacklist?
There is no problem if you don't send email by the proxies.

Yes if you don't want the website know you are using a proxy.

Socks proxy is versatile proxy for all usage while the http proxy can only be used for surfing.

You should install some anti-virus program (with the anti-hack function) in your computer.
Elite Proxy Switcher - Easily testing and using proxies.
Socks Proxy Checker - To be your chief socks proxy checker.
Buy Proxy - Buy checked proxies from My-Proxy easily and quickly.
