I don't just lie in bed.

Twice recently I've seen remarks saying, basically, "visitors from our site are being blocked by this other site." I haven't had this problem, personally, and I'm pretty sure the reason is that I use Privoxy, which lies like a bear rug to the rest of the Internet. It lies about where I've come from, it lies about what software I'm using. Coupled with Tor, it even lies about where I am.

I believe in obeying access restrictions even when I can evade them (I haven't made any attempt to evade my ban at RedState, for instance), but in this case I wind up evading without even noticing it.

Give it a try. Lie your ass off, and forget about being judged by where you come from.
