All right. I am clueless - CLUELESS - about internet connections, IP addresses and proxy servers and anything else like it.

Simple thing: on a different forum, a mod gone crazy (I exposed him for lying) has banned me. Complete abuse, and this is no joke.

If I re-register a different screen name he will ban that too (IP). I need to communicate with my friends on this forum and exchange e-mail addresses etc but I need private messaging for that. So, I need to connect so my IP is hidden - through a proxy server.

I use firefox.

How do I do it, step by step, a simple, 1 by 1 approach?
What is the EASIEST way to do it?
I tried some proxyswitch app, but it seems every connection turns up dead.
I called my internet supplier and they said my router has nothing to do with any proxy connections or anything, ie. it doesn't act as a filter.

I figured it out,

Though most of the servers that come up on Proxy Switchers are dead...

Where do I find non-dead anonymous proxy servers?
