Private proxies suspended because of "Abuse report"

Yesterday i received email from my private proxy provider (i never had any problems with them in the past with other tools in 3 years now) i laso got simillar email from my vpn provider several times when i was using public proxies.

I checked my settings several times and only thing i could find on my projects was that "Continuously try to post to a site even if failed before " option was checked.

Do you do you think that can be reason for ban? 


  • checking reports he sent me now i believe "Continuously try to post to a site even if failed before" option was not a problem because it was only ticked on one campaign and on reports there is almost report on every campaign.

    What can i do to prevent this from happening again?
  • I know that it doesn't answer your question, but maybe use a different proxy provider who doesn't care if you use their proxies for spamming? :)
  • yea, i'm considering that option to :) i now realize that they banned my because one ordinary spam report by some forum/blog
  • this isn't new; I have had several proxy providers ban because of gsa ser usage.

    I had this problem about six months ago. What I traced it to was "continuous posting" on the "Trackback" platform. I went to the complaining website, and the only thing allowed on their blog was trackbacks (no comments). The level of attempted posting to that website resembled a DDOS attack, per the report.

    Since then I broke out trackbacks into separate projects, and I set these projects to NOT continuously post. I haven't had a problem since then.

    By the way, this happened on buyproxies which I honestly don't believe had any relevance. I just chalked it up to learning about the settings.

    curious why this would create a problem with tracks and not other platforms?

    you have to check "check if anonymous" on the proxy pane.

    On the proxy list, there is a column that says "anonymous". check if it is yes or not.

    Always subscribe to proxy provider that provides anonymous proxy otherwise your IP is transparent.
