    I'm not a SB user but I'm an experienced proxy scraper. Sounds like:

    1) The places you're scraping from suck
    2) You're scraping a lot of non-anonymous proxies (eg. transparent) along with your anon proxies and it's distorting your numbers.
    3) You're setting the timeout too low - remember lots of peas are very slow.
    4) I would say around 10% of anon proxies listed on proxy sites actually turn out to be both working and anonymous.
