I must say I've been having some poor results of late. I initially thought it was down to running out of keywords, but I scraped a whole load more and popped them in but the results are the same. I'm lucky to be getting one verified an hour over 15 projects. My private proxies check out ok through scrapebox, project settings still the same, but very slow otherwise. No excess load on my server as others have encountered and thing are pretty stable otherwise. I'm gonna keep on fiddling and try and work out what's going on. Definitely something amiss, but not sure what just yet.
