Okay so this might be done, so feel free to mock and deride me, but on the chance that it's a brilliant idea I am going to ask. My new online forum gets a certain amount of spam. The forum software lets me look at the details of the spammers, their logon names, IP Addresses, etc... So I start thinking, "Those IP Addresses are probably proxies." and then I think "Maybe those proxies are free proxies.", and THEN I think "Well, maybe I could USE those free proxies myself. Dumb idea, or brilliant?
