    Proxies are votes cast on behalf of a participant in a democratic or parliamentary system by the participant's delegate or representative.

    A proxy is like you and your buddy walking up to an ugly girl and her hot friend in the bar, and your buddy talks up the ugly girl so that you can talk to the hot girl unopposed.

    Your proxy talks to the Internet for you so that the server doesn't see what computer is really connecting to the site.

    I want to punch you, but don't want to get in trouble, so I ask someone to punch you and not tell you I told them to punch you, and if they tell you who told them to punch you, they're transparent; if they don't tell you who told them to punch you but they do tell you someone did tell them to punch you, they're anonymous; if they don't tell you anyone told them to punch you, they're high anoynmous/elite.

    A proxy, or proximication, allows your local divulged activity to be averted watonly through outer shells, anonymously, so you remain undefineable. :)
