    Or alternatively you could use Tor, either in the full setup (see here) or built in as part of the firefox browser (see here) if you actually want online privacy.

    there's no such thing as truly anonymous surfing. the question is, do you want to trust a bunch of guys providing you with a way filter your information why keeping a record of everything you do (credit card numbers, passwords, etc etc) all for free, or do you trust the service that you pay for to not turn you in for illegal downloads?

    it all depends on what you do, but i don't trust proxies in any way, shape, or form.

    Then what's with the pointless posting? You seem to be doing quite a bit of it.. I'd report you, but it isn't working for me..

    Maybe auslander can take a peak at the DS forum and see what I mean..

    phlax, i think it would be best if you and i kept the off-topic posting elsewhere.

    but i do agree, yes.

    matt1o1, read the forum rules as is obvious that you haven't or you would have seen this.
    8. Don't reply with an off-topic comment/question -- instead start a new thread.
    next time you do something like that you might hear the distant thunder approaching which you don't want to hear on this site. understand!!
