[B]So i take it that proxies arn't effective here

But what about firewalls?,
- as a guy on another forum said he was using one so the site wouldnt send junk mail to him via his IP...? [/B]
The best firewall available is Norton Personal firewall 2002, it's the only software that blocks every port on you pc.

uk_trader if Norton Personel firewall is configured correctly to your PC it can block the most ports on your computer compared to any other Firewall.

Fair enough that is your opinion that it is the best firewall but what you said earlier was that it was the only firewall/software that can close all your ports which is wrong.
