Using a Proxy site

#1
I get on forums using a proxy for what I thought would keep me annomyous. I had a falling out with a board mod and logged on with a different user name using several proxys. He still knew who I was by my ISP address. Thought proxys were suppose to prevent that from happening. Any ideas?

Hi, you can get cheap dedicated anonymous proxies from proxiesforrent.com. I had that exact same problem, i got ip and isp banned from a forum once after I had a falling out with the mods. I used their service and I got several user accounts going still to this day. No, this isnt an ad, Im just really knowing your situation. Good luck!

Better idea to me is to obey the forum rules that YOU agreed to when you signed up then you will not have any problems or need to use proxies.

You make that statement with absolutely no knowledge of the situation. What makes you think I was wrong and the mod was right? I don't see your dog in this fight, so why bother with your useless comment!

They probably knew your IP as they run an add-on like Proxy to Real IP Conversion.


It is known that those who want to be anonymous are mostly people who feel they may (or want to) post stuff that they know will either make people mad or are against the rules so forums can run add-ons to combat this.

BTW- It is anonymous not annomyous.

If using IE you may want to try ieSpell and if Firefox you can try SpellBound.

Have a great day.

This was a mostly local sports forum. The mod or someone was able to get personal info on me. Address - phone # and I got some bad agrivation from some unknown people. I wanted back on to see if I could find out who did it.

What did you do, get on saying a particular team sux or something? I agree with Zombie, most cases the use for a proxy is for instances other than good .

Like the others have said there's no smoke without fire and I highly doubt they singled you out for no reason.
I do understand you being annoyed they got personal info about you though, how did they manage do this? Sorry for being nosey but I'm just interested.

Most info they got on you was probably using your signup info. Since they have that all the proxies in the world won't save you. Oh and if your using a proxy to surf a forum you were banned from you deserve the ban. :) The net is big ... move on.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
