Hi, I'm about to embark on some scraping and spamming. I'm wondering if I need a VPS? I would rather not as its just an extra cost, but I like the fact it's always on and easy to scale if needed and also it means I can use my PC for other things. It's just that I have social accounts of my own that Ive built up for years, so would hate to get banned on one of these. You think it's possible I could just use a virtual desktop (like vmware, or virtualbox), so all browser, cookies etc is kept clean/separate. Or is it possible my IP will be leaked (through proxies)? If I do go with a new VPS, is it necessary to go with a company outside of my legal jurisdiction?
