Proxy Clicker Question
How come proxy clickers cost sites loads of money because of bandwidth?
I thought they just used different anonymous IPs to get a click on game site like pornstarguru or outwar or to click on banner ads.
I know this is probably a dull question but I've been thinking about it for a couple of days now.
Thanks in advance for your answer(s).

To answer your question: All a proxy clicker does, is goto a site over and over using a different proxy server each time. So for example in outwar's case, if 10,000 people use the proxy clicker, and the proxy clicker can goto the site 10 times per minute, thats like 100,000 people going to the site every minute!, eventually slowing down the servers if that keeps it up, so they only way to keep the servers speedy would to get more bandwidth.
