a bit harsh. he has and probs will continue to make mistakes like loads of people but i dont think a PB is needed.
as for proxies they are perfectly fine.

OK, enough of this. Can you guys sit back a minute and realise how much we have to look at something before we make a desision. Brookfield made the call that seemed best for him. The only person who really has the right to complain about it is Chris seeing as how it was his post.

In the future, if anyone has a problem with any mod's call, PM another mod or even David if you don't want to PM the person who made the call. give them a link, and a description on whats going on. Things can be dealt with a lot easier that way, and with a lot less raised tempers and bans. I'm just sick of all these arguments between mods and members in the open forum. Do you know how crappy that looks?

Get this back on topic (masking IPs if you have forgotten).

Yes their legal. However, you can do illegal stuff with a proxy, but they have tons of legitimate uses. I run a proxy server at both work and home. Proxy servers have 3 very common uses, to speed up web browsing, filter out certain webpages (ex. a school using it to filter out porn) and to bypass filters (ex. to see porn at school)

Here's some common ways of masking an IP

#1: HTTP / SOCKS Proxy's (ex. squid) - Legal (if used legitimately)
Offer fairly good anonymity, however if you do something illegal the proxy owner can be forced to reveal who you are. Most are very slow. See post later tonight on how to find FAST http proxys. Setting this proxy requires access to settings that can be locked down.

#2: Browser proxy's (ex. phpproxy?) - Legal (if used legitimately)
These are what are popular at schools. Allows students with no access the ability to visit a webpage that can mask where they are going. Great for getting on forums, myspace, etc from schools. Also gives you fairly good anonymity.

#3: Hijacking - Illegal
Putting a Trojan on someones computer. From this trojan you can than enable remote desktop, install VNC, install proxys, etc. This can be one of the BEST ways to hide yourself truly, expisally if you hijack computers in more lawless country's. Requires a great deal of skills.

#4: Tunneling (ex. ssh) - Legal (if used legitimately)
Some programs have the ability to tunnel connections. For example one could have a remote server setup, and direct connections through it using a program like SSH or stunnel. Unless you have hijacked the computer, this does not offer much anonymity.
