    I have loaded up a couple of thousand proxies into Proxyfirewall, tested em and tried to use the ones that remained with no luck whatsoever. Pages just wouldn't load up with any of them.

    However....

    I am on a broadband connection with dynamic IP's. Every time I connect to the internet, my IP changes. Is this as good as having a working proxy? If I am banned from anywhere such as CL, Myspace etc I can just change my IP and be good to go again yes? If so, is this a wise way to continue... just change my IP in this way every time an IP is banned, or should I really be using proxies?

    Many people with dynamic IP addresses disconnect and reconnect to post on CL etc. If you are willing to go this route, you really do not need proxies.

    Thanks :)

    That makes me suspicious. Why do you say "if you are willing"? Could this cause me problems?

    Eventually your area might slowly start to run out of viable IPs. If you start to get noticed, after a while they'll kill off individual IPs, then blocks at a time, then your whole range.

    Also, you'll only be able to post in your local craigslist. Posting to losangeles.craigslist.org from Chicago will get insta-killed.
