Hey there, so I have a few questions.
I'm having some trouble with getting reliable proxies, and was wondering:
1. Does it matter if you use different proxies from different locations on the same account (I've been assuming yes, and trying to find proxies all from the same location)
2. I have found a really fast reliable proxy, but it always gives me an http_forbidden.net:404 The proxy server is refusing connections whenever I submit a form request. (logging in, clicking "go" on search) I'm using firefox, with FoxyProxy, and I've found another proxy that doesn't refuse connections in these instances, but of course, ten minutes later it's down.
Any help would be awesome, if I'm asking this in the wrong place, please redirect me, thank you!
1. Yes. Proxies from different countries = you're done if they look your way
2. If you can't get in, then it's not a really fast reliable proxy. It's a dud - looks good, but completely non-functioning (or doesn't exist). The problem with free proxies are many are slow, sketchy, or unreliable with frequent disconnects. Keep looking, but don't expect to find a perfect proxy out of the blue.

Thanks so much! Argh, I guess I'll keep trying. Do you know how far back into proxy info they look into? I'm sure there's no solid answer on this, but I figure I'd ask in case anyone has experience of a freezing due to proxies from far back

Ugh so I find a new one that works great, but then after a certain amount of form requests it locks me out from sending them again. I don't know what's causing it, and think it will keep happening no matter what proxy I choose
Instead of looking for proxy, I suggest you use TOR. Google it, it's a firefox based proxy. It automatically set up new proxy every time you open it. (it also had a huge list of selection of countries to choose from)
You can always use the proxy list from hidemyass. There are tons of site that will provide free proxy list, but like mod said, none are reliable. Some are only usable within certain time frame ie 24hrs window.
Also you can set up VPN, but pain in the ass to set up or purchase one for a monthly fee.
Lastly if TNT really want to pick a fight with you, they can find just about all type of excuse to freeze you without a second thought. Stay away from neopet chat, stay quiet, and don't bring attention to yourself, and most importantly, be smart about what you do and think about the impact before putting thought into action.

Thank you so much for your advice, I'd love to look into TOR, but if it sets up a different proxy every time I go into it, won't it look suspicious that my account is being accessed at a bunch of different locations across the US? Or does neo see that?
