Hahaha, Diesel, we really need to prevent people from registering via proxy servers. That would cut out a lot of this bullshit.

A proxy server is a computer that offers a computer network service to allow clients to make indirect network connections to other network services. A client connects to the proxy server, then requests a connection, file, or other resource available on a different server. The proxy provides the resource either by connecting to the specified server or by serving it from a cache. In some cases, the proxy may alter the client's request or the server's response for various purposes.


Basically, individually banning them is useless.
PBB
Yup, spammers use proxy servers to hide their real IPs.

Would this affect me? I think I'm stuck behind a proxy server while I'm in Saudi...
PBB
No, not if it was setup to only apply to people when they registered.
trail_boss2

PBB
Um, have we ever not done that?...
