    If proxy is banned from a site like Yellowpages does it then go to some world repository where other big sites in real time can detect the proxy is banned in real time as well? There for it is killed across the entire web?

    I do not know if yellow pages reports but you can probably search the proxy on google and see if it shows up on any lists.

    It should only go to websites/companies that Yellowpages or whoever owns them owns. I don't THINK there is a universal list and if there is, I don't think Yellowpages would be able to access it, probably a higher authority body such as Google or maybe even higher, like police, FBI etc.

    There are some "universal lists" of open proxies. MaxMind.com for example maintains a large database of known proxies. So a site like Yellow pages could simply check the IP against their database. There are numerous other vendors of constantly updated proxy lists for blocking. Also, there are a number of checks web site owners can put in place to block and prevent proxies from working.

    Also, I noticed HideMyAss's IP ranges are blocked on a lot of review sites like Yelp. I assume the had a programmer dump the IP list from the software or something of the sort.
