    Helloworld to all! I'm new here.

    Just a quick question: Is it OK to just go directly to the **download** page without first going through a proxy to hide the ip?

    My main concern is that if we are accessing these pages and downloading their stuffs, will we be traced or caught for *downloading* them?

    Sorry if this question sounds noob. But I'm sure that are new BHWs who will want to find out too right? I have tried to search for a thread on this but without success. Any help will be appreciated.

    I am actually referring to those product pages (hxxp pages) that fellow BHWs offer. I tried looking at my webhost traffic stats - and visitors to a site actually have their ip tracked.

    Do you guys use a proxy before accessing such pages?

    I never bother, but it might be a good idea if you're overly paranoid.

    I tried one of those free proxy out there (googled free proxy). But they are too slow to just load the pages. Makes me wonder how long it would take to just get to download a single file.

    Well thanks, apekillape! I guess i am just over-paranoid like you said. =)
