    Well I just got this email, figured I'd pass it along...

    Hi

    We are sorry to announce we no longer allow using our proxies with Scrapebox and Xrumer software. We received too many abuse complaints. To maintain high quality of service for other customers Scrapebox and Xrumer are not allowed on proxybonanza.com from now on.

    We will be also reassigning proxy IPs for all shared proxy accounts tonight (8pm-11pm GMT+1 7th March) so please check your account after 11pm for new proxies.

    He thanks for the info. Good to know. Hopefully Scrapebox can suggest us some other proxy services.

    Ouch, that sucks. Well, that will save me $24 a month. Is there any other proxy provider that is as good?

    scrapeboxs site seems to recommend "yourprivateproxy"

    but they seem a bit pricey for me esp just starting out :(

    $30/mo for 10 proxies isn't bad at all, especially if they work as well as proxybonanza proxies work.

    hrm here is a quick question, how would they know what I'm using the proxies with ?
    Can they tell the difference between scrapebox and some script I might have written ?

    they operate the proxy servers so they can see what content goes through them. so within the content they will be able to identify if it is from sb as there will be footprints and patterns.

    They will also receive copies of the complaints from their ISP, anything labled as "blog comment spam" or "forum spam" will probably get your account terminated.

    I've never had a proxy account banned and I do a ton of ref spamming and comment spamming.

    any alternative to yourpriviateproxies? 30 bucks is quite a lot. By the way I think I paid 5$-mo for 10 proxies at proxybonanza, though I think they were shared and not completely private.

    I just sent a really nice email asking for a partial refund since I only had the service two weeks and they refunded me half my payment. They aren't total douche bags. Just be professional and polite in your email to them.

    I dont know if this will work, since I dont have a copy of scrapebox. But try proxyfirewall.org, they sell some proxy access. Also consider getting a VPN with a dynamic IP (you get a new one each time you login). There is also TOR, which changes your IP with each page refresh - http://www.torproject.org

    I agree, however, no where on their site does it say anything about bandwidth. I don't mind paying $30/month for 10 IP's if I get at least 15GB of bandwidth.

    I cancelled my ProxyBonanza account and they refunded me according to my left over bandwidth so that was good.

    Oh, i think this refundpart is not so impossible.

    You sign the service, they offer explicit scrapeboxusing, the cancel this service and so they have to refund the money.

    There is nothing written in the FAQ/ToS that they can change/cancel the service as the like.
