I sent in a post to BoingBoing this morning about Google blocking my proxy searches. Apparently, I’m not the only one with the problem right now. I switched off FoxyProxy for the moment, but the CustomizeGoogle privacy settings should still be protecting me from tracking even if I’m coming from my own IP.
I’m guessing maybe if I quit Firefox and got a different proxy, I’d be able to get going again as opposed to disabling proxy use for Google? Cory mentions that he’s tried other proxies and is getting the same forbidden page. A friend is advocating a BitTorrent, P2P-style proxy network instead. That way, the IP->search link is so diluted that it’s essentially worthless. Anybody working on that? Thanks.
