    They can. It's a really REALLY saturated niche now because they're extremely easy to setup but back ~ a year ago when I had mine I was making $20-$30 a day sometimes with adsense

    I'm sure it's pretty easy.

    If someone is stupid enough to go through a proxy with their credit card details though... :hsugh:

    It isnt, you are using my site, you agree to my conditions.

    Mind you, I dont run an open proxy, but I know a friend that did this as a case study on how stupid people are with their trust in security.
