    I got 10 proxies, I know nothing about them and don't want them.

    They were provided by someone else here on BHW after I replied to their free proxy thread saying I wouldn't use free proxies that I knew nothing about. But I got them via PM any way. Go figure.

    So, if anyone wants 10 free proxies that I know ABSOLUTELY nothing about - don't know if they work, how anonymous (if at all) they are, or anything else other than their IP and ports - lemme know.

    First post "wins". I know I'm making this sound like buying a raffle ticket to win a shit sandwich, but I just want to make it clear I don't know what the hell these are, I didn't want them in the first place, I don't plan to spend any time trying to figure out anything about them, and I'll give them to whoever thinks they might be able to make use of them.

    I too got 10 of these proxies and when I tried to use one some thing very strange happened to my browser so I wont be using them in the future I would say be ware of these. You usually get nothing for nothing.

    PM sent with the little bundle of mystery.

    @sograj - I hear you, that's why I originally posted on the guy's thread that I would be wary of taking second-hand proxies if I were anyone else. I was a bit....surprised....to get them in my inbox the next day. I didn't ask for them, I just posted a friendly bit of advice about them.

    Anonymity is critical for some of what some of us do....cough Big G cough....

    I don't know if they work, I don't know what the guy who posted the original thread is up to (though now he is wondering if he could start a business selling proxies on BHW in that thread), that's why I threw such a big set of caveats in my OP here in this thread.

    But the "winner" has them in their PM box now, and is aware of what they have received, so let's all move on shall we?

    p.s. there are good sources of free and anonymous proxies out there, they tend to be slower and die quickly and some of them aren't actually anon, but the other thread isn't a good place to look for free proxies IMHO. and paid proxies FTW.

    peace,
    gregs.
