Maybe a stupid question: I know the importance of using proxies if you sign up for a forum or any type of site where you create an account or profile. No problem. But after you create the account, is it okay to go back without using proxies? For example, I want to sign up for a vbulletin forum and I use a proxy. Okay, the webmaster goes into his admin panel and sees that loclhero signed up with an ip somewhere in Zimbabwe. All future logins to that forum are with my own ip because the proxies are so slow. Am I still anonymous at that point?
