    Hey guys,

    You guys are a hell of a lot smarter than I am. I am a classified ad poster.

    In the process of conducting business, I login to everything from my advertiser, to ad networks, classified ad sites, gmail catchalls...blab, blah blah.....

    you get the picture......but now I will be using proxies..hmmm????

    I used to change ip's all the time, every few ads...blah blah, but they were within the same basic area, the only thing that changed on the address was the last 2 or 3 digits, I probably wasn't fooling anyone.....

    So now I will start to post to a cross section of categories, categories totally unrelated, instead of only one cat like I had in the past, I'll be using multiple proxies, seems to make sense to have them originate from different geo's..

    Any strategy I should use in as far as applying proxies same or different with different pieces of the puzzle?

    second point;

    like one thing I'm thinking, kind of a side thought but related never the less, and even part of the same question as above.. what about gmail catchall accounts?....one minute I'm logging on a proxy from miami, then a while later I'm logging in from portland, an hour later from boston?

    should I be concerned?

    About your gmail question:

    From my experience gmail is very friendly to people using multiple accounts and multiple IPs on one account.
    Of course I don't know what happens if you use hundreds or thousands of IPs because I use unique gmail accounts for such purposes instead of just one.
    (you know, in the end changing your IP does not help if you do not change your mail addy)

    If you only use one gmail account, why do you use a proxy to connect to it ?
    Just put it in your proxy exception list (in your browser settings) and you will always use your real IP for it.

    well I'm thinking, if I'm doing all this posting using different IP's to stay ahead of the site (if you will) then if in the process I will have to either check email or send from email, or approve ads from email (I should be saying "gmail")

    I have never really switched ip's from diff geo regions, but if I have to clear cookies, that always drops everything that I'm logged into, then I would have to log in again, and of course the new ip would be from a diff region....

    see? make sense?

    maybe I should use proxies in the same general geo area, maybe no need to go cross country, but still I'd have to delete cookies, and log on to whatever I'm using all over again
