    At this point I have two instances running on my computer dedicated to SB.
    I have 10 private proxies used mostly for posting and I get a daily list of 200 proxies, of which I usually get about 50 to be good according to SB checker.

    Today I was scraping for trackbacks with one instance and posting to a previously harvested list with another. By mistake I started posting with the public proxies, so I decided to run an experiment and posted to the exactly same list of trackbacks using private and public proxies. I've used different sets of advertised urls so there was no mix up.

    To my surprise - out of 2,388 posted - 50 public proxies "found" 130 and 10 private proxies "found" only 79 entries!

    Does it mean that my private proxies are not so great or that 5 times the amount of so-so public proxies beats private proxies?

    OK, a second try...

    The 12k list (same for both), public proxies (70 this time, not checked for latency) - 277 "found", 10 private proxies - 247 "found"...

    Another difference I found is that the SB instance used with private proxies had TB sending set to 50 connections and the other one had it set to 40. There was significant difference in time needed to post - 51min for private proxies and 86min for the public.

    Conclusions???? Test, test, test! I wonder how it would be on a VPS...
