    I'm using a proxy switching addon in firefox so I can log in to my Youtube accounts (around 100 accounts)and I thought I had things under wraps:

    1. Clear cookies
    2. Switch proxy
    3. Login and screw around youtube
    4. logout
    5. Clear Cookies
    6. Wash, rinse and repeat

    Now I get this:

    This page appears when Google automatically detects requests coming from your computer network which appear to be in violation of the Terms of Service. The block will expire shortly after those requests stop. In the meantime, solving the above CAPTCHA will let you continue to use our services.

    plus a captcha and a bunch more crap... Anyone have a good solution for solving this problem?

    The problem is
    a) you are doing it too fast - if you are using a script, bot, etc. add a bit of delay b/n logins
    b) Google has soft-listed (term I'm coining right now) your proxies - even with private proxies, you could have problems with Google, it has happened to me and it has happened to other people

    I would still say that a) is more likely

    They're linking you somehow....

    I'm thinking LSO files, and MAC address

    I do not thinking logging in and out too fast will cause linking. There are far too many people to consider in that category who are legit users.

    I'll have to play around... There has to be another signal coming from my computer/connection that's calling attention. The proxies are all private and from servers across California. Cookies are cleaned.. Maybe they are tracking the mac.. Games..

    Create more FireFox profiles and use those. Silly to try to do this sort of thing with one profile. One computer can have 100s of profiles.

    Each profile runs its own plugins, cache, cookies, etc. Also makes it simple to assign one proxy to each profile. I name the profiles the account name to keep them separate. Then no need to change proxies, clear cache and all those tricks although I still run Better Privacy to keep it all cleaned anyways. Have it clear LSOs when you open and close the browser.

    Are you sure you're not seeing the results because the private proxies are shared? Maybe someone is using the same proxies and scraping Google and getting them softblocked. Are you sure you're the one getting the proxies softblocked and not someone else? Just something to consider.

    Good ideas and good points... I'm using anonymous-proxies.net for my proxy source. I havent asked them if they are being shared. I just made that assumption once I noticed the proxies disappear from their list of available proxies once I select them. Worth asking though... I really like the idea of multiple profiles. There's a lot of up front work but may be what I need to get this under wraps.. thanks..

    you should use dedicated private proxies not private shared proxies, and also erase .sol cookies from macromedia folder ...
