    Some proxies

    Thought they might be useful for some to block....

    We're having a nightmare at the moment. The students have found a Facebook group apparently, which releases a new proxy practically daily (or at least 3/4 times a week).

    I've blocked these ones just this lunchtime.
    gravelhouse.com
    hyperbags.com
    mathslacker.com
    peacefire.org
    turtlegraveyard.com
    prettytoad.com

    Also, something I have found useful is on peacefire.org, they have a circumventor email which they send out the new proxies on also. I have set our exchange so that I can receive emails from the email account but students can't...I'll be able to keep blocking them as I get email updates.

    I have had to block all uncategorized sites and https sites too but some proxy sites are masking themselves under shopping and so on! All I can say is they don't have any filtering at home......

    Thank you for saving me from checking - I always do, though, just in case

    @Nik - if you have some examples of proxies with particularly good camouflage i'd like to have them for our proxy zoo
