First of all, thanks for reading. Secondly, I've spent about 8 hours over the past couple of days reading stuff about proxies. The more I read, the more confused I become. I am sure that this is due to my severe ignorance on the topic. Let me use this very simple example below to illustrate my confusion: So, let's say that I want to create 5 different Elance accounts, each with a different proxy IP so that admin doesn't catch me. I would use 4 accounts to order "from myself" in the 5th. 1. Would I simply sign up for HideMyAss? 2. With sites like HideMyAss, the IP addresses keep changing, right? They change daily? 3. If this is true, then my 4 Blackhat accounts would be placing orders from different IP's every day, correct? 4. And finally...is this why BHW's "Proxies for Sale" section has SOOOOO MANY people selling proxies? If I buy proxies from one of these "Non-HideMyAss" sellers, then will I get individual proxie IP's that will NEVER CHANGE? Will the proxie IP's be mine to keep and use forever? Am I on the right track here? Thanks for helping a NOOB. And sorry if this series of questions has been previously asked thousands of times. I am simply overwhelmed with the abundance of information found in this forum.
