IMPORTANT: Posters using proxy servers will be banned

Lately we've noticed an increase in posters using a proxy server when posting on XT. Because this is a well-known way to hide your identity (and thus have a bigger chance of avoiding detection when your other account has been banned or barred for example) we have decided to take counter measures. Posters using proxies will from now on be banned on the spot. So please, change your internet connection settings back to normal and avoid being removed from XT.

How can I know if I use a proxy or not?

My weekly rant!

27th May 1965: Over 16,000 days.

"For a moment there I returned to my youth, the early youth, when all nice illusions were gathered together. Then life came and, like a strong wind, blew them away, one by one. What we call happiness is sometimes the accordance between our life and circumstances, our biography and history, our personal aspirations and historical currents. If I look at things that way, I can say: I was born too early to be happy. But birth is one of the many things we do not get to choose. It is part of our destiny."

If you don't know, you're definitely not using one

And if I found myself banned next week, I should know that I was definitely using one?

What if you are using it from work? Is it possible you are going through a proxy server?

If the ban message says so, yes. But I've checked just now and you're not using a proxy so you're safe

Are you just bored since there are no new members to check or members to ban so you have to do this now?

In my case it is true. We co-ordinate with teams @Israel, Gibraltar, UK, US, bulgaria.. and all use a single proxy server (AFIK - could be wrong though). Anyways, It wont be a public proxy server.
