Louis Proyect: The Unrepentant Marxist

Use of proxy servers is strictly banned

I understand that some of you like to post from proxy servers in coffee shops, etc., but unless you use an IP address assigned to the router from Verizon or Spectrum, etc., you are wasting your time. Also, don’t bother using a server in Cambodia.

I realize that VPN’s are key to posting in places like Iran and China, but nobody who has ever used one here was trying to avoid repression. Instead, they serve as some kind of shield that allows the user to avoid detection, I guess. As if I give a shit. To tell you the truth, it is not that I mind the personal attacks that usually comes from these sources. It is instead the refusal to be on the level. With so much anonymity polluting Twitter, the last thing I need is bogus names and IP addresses here.

So don’t waste your time or mine.


  1. You know what VPNs are good for? Watching tv shows from other countries. I watched the Canadian Broadcasting Company’s coverage of the Winter Olympics during the last Winter Olympics. It was amazing. In these here United States, they only covered the highlights, and then only events where Americans were prominent. Watching the CBC, I was able to watch every curling match! I became a big fan of curling during the previous Winter Olympics. Do you think the guy in the picture you posted is watching curling? Maybe.

  2. One more thing. Not about VPNs, but about trolling. There’s a YouTube channel (I watch a lot of YouTube) called Internet Comment Etiquette, where the host shows people how to write proper internet comments. It’s pretty funny. You should check it out.
