    When I scrape my private IP's die pretty much instantly, so I was wondering how safe is it to scrape blog urls without using a proxy and then using the proxies to post comments?

    eventually google will ban your ip for too many requests. If your doing huge amounts of scraping then yes you need proxies and lots of them If your just trying to scrape a few thousand urls then you dont really need them

    I would stick with the proxies, you do not want to risk it with google.

    If you too much search queries to google, they may temporarily block your IP

    Do it with some public proxies
    Why should we take risk in this case ?

    Yep your IP will get temp banned, so it'll hamper your scraping.

    Threre's absolutely no risk if you can change your ip after it's been blocked

    If you have a dynamic IP you would be fine since you'd just switch off your cable modem and or router (at the same time, wait 5 - 10 minutes) and everything would reset and give you the new IP. If you have a static IP it might be wise to just use a program that harvests proxies real quick and just delete dups from them, and it won't hurt to take the extra time to make sure your IP doesn't get banned if indeed it is static.
