Say I post a pic w/o using a proxy...the IP the pic was posted from is not being stored...so using a proxy - or not - shouldn't make a difference in my not-so-computer-savvy opinion.
Thanks for your time explaining this to me!
All your LIVE activity on any website is linked in real time your IP#, recorded by us or not. It's recorded by your hosting company and any interested party between you and our server. If you surf the web from your computer without a proxy, you are revealing your IP to every website you visit, including this one. Only diff is we aren't keeping your IP# in our database, but other sites and the NSA and other agencies can see it & record it if they like and that IP# can be looked up and traced right to your doorstep.
Using "invisible mode" here isn't going to change any of that.
Got it now?
