    I was making some decent money on a high traffic site comment spamming a link, and its worked for some time. I've now been banned from posting there. I've tried using a proxy but it still wont allow me to post.

    Ive cleared all my cookies, and tried again with a Proxy and it stilllll wont let me post!. I used another computer I have with a proxy to post, and that did work!

    It seems no matter what IP I use they can somehow detect this computer for some reason.

    So what I do to bypass the ban on my main computer that I use for all my projects? I hope someone can help me! Thanks so much!

    It could be that they are censoring the link? Can you post ANYTHING?

    if you don't reveal the exact site (i guess you don't want to), you'll have a very hard time to get an appropriate answer to your question

    your computer also has a MAC address, but not too much site out there using this to identify, so maybe this isn't your problem (if it is, you need a MAC changer software)

    another thing you also have to delete besides the "normal" cookies: the flash cookies, you can do it with betterprivacy firefox addon, or you can use ccleaner for the task

    They could have possibly banned your MAC address range.
    Im 100% sure clearing with ccleaner and using rdsl would work on your computer.

    clear all cookies from all browsers.
    new ip
    make sure you are not using IE.
    clear your lso's with better privacy/firefox
    change the link you are spamming (make a forward)

    get linux and change your MAC address with just 1 command, google for it.

    the best part is, you can install linux on USB flash device :)

    Are you using the same link while every try? Perhaps they filter on the content you want to post..

    What he said LSOs = flash cookies and are normally hidden within your system, using CC cleaner wont get rid of them Better Privacy plugin is the best way to go.

    Also try changing your user agent, Its probably not your Mac address, If you are spamming a big site Like Yahoo they have ways to detect proxies (just try and use your paypal account with a proxy instant limitation)

    So clear
    Cache
    Cookies and LSOs
    Change user agent
    Run CC cleaner (make sure to clear browsing history)

    You should then be OK to post :D

    I had the same problem sometimes back, and this is what I did: 1. I changed my MAC Address, I don't remember the program I used. Google it, you will get a good program to do it.

    2. Clear all cookies from all browsers, and if you use Firefox, I suggest Better Privacy Addon.

    the MAC address does not pass your local network, you can change it forever without any change...

    The kind of thread I like. :)

    By the way, yes a website can read your MAC address a number of ways.. Here are a few ways it can happen.

    • ActiveX control (this runs in your browser)
    • Javascript (if the javascript can instantiate a COM object)
    • ARP request (Windows service that does an ARP request once the IP has been captured)
    • Client-side programs (local programs can easily grab your MAC address)
    You also might want to look into browser fingerprinting. :)

    well i guess i know the site, well its it the one i am talking about, you should get away with it the next day and keep doing what you doing,
    clearing flash or using ccleaner will not work here.

    For situation like that, I like virtual machine, you restart it from scratch in 30 sec, and you get fresh new one to start again. win7 i shipped with XPmode or you could try virtualbox with ubuntu.
