Our amigo Corto Maltese keeps sending us his wondrous findings. A very talented
'pseudoanonymizers spotter', at times he believes
he should avoid to send such tricks ´cause he considers them "too easy".
But readers will love what they have of simplicity!
He writes: "There are so many 'unspotted' resources out there.
The only thing one has to
do is to spot them..." and that's what Corto did with his
bag of tricks, that you should by all means read or re-read
and that's what he does, once more, today. (You should also read Corto's "garden of forked paths")
The importance of this 'pseudoanonymizers' spotting' can hardly
be overestimated. In order to appreciate it fully,

Da bag is not empty, yet Coupla useful ways to look for anonymizers, by Corto, March 2002
An useful way to look for anonymizers it´s too remember that normally they appear
under the form of two
joined urls. The appropriate keywords in google give b.e. the following:
though we have obtained results (and an interesting parameter like nph that we
might have already know, reading anonyweb), the question
is if besides those it is possible to spot other anonymizers
or, pseudoanonymizers, that is scripts that were not created with
any specific anonymizing objective, and if we can avoid mere
redirectors or simple links; so,
1º The first chain that called my attention was (modified by
my personal addenda of a checker): do/session/new
Though sometimes it is better to bring the work were you are,

Another useful url is http://www.doctor-html.com/
and the following - modified - form:

How to access any page on the web, for free
Ahem, read the following and think at the possibilities this opens... not only in
England, he? The silly "advertisementisation"
of the web, that our enemies are actively
pushing, opens huge possibilities for reversers!
Bet with you that "pseudoanonymizer spotting" à la Corto
will soon become a popular sport!
But there's another teaching here: The Mida touch once more! As WayOutThere did dealing with commercial searchbots, reversers
transform in knowledge gold all
the advertisement dirt that they touch!
Uuuh! Commercial beasts, do your hear me?
You do your outmost to annoy us with advertisements
in order to screw the poor slaves with your useless crap? We do our outmost to screw
you black and blue: We use cleverly your crap in order
to do whatever we want, or even more, for free!
Having just read 'da bag is not empty' I was amazed to see the
This was not only because hmv is one of the biggest digital media
retailers and it will amuse me greatly to download mp3s with their
own site :-)
The reason this is important is that, in London and many modern
cities these days more and more 'webpoints' are being installed in
payphones every day. I do not know about any others, but the
london ones allow 'free' access to certain ad-infested commercial
sites - including HMV!
Thus, it should be very possible to browse the web unrestricted
while waiting for a train in waterloo with this url to hand :-)
However, I am several hours away from london and havent seen
any such webpoints locally, so if you might publish this small idea
of mine so others might test it, or seek -and hopefully report-
similar unintended-proxies on the 'free' sites at their local
The URL combination given above will not work for a long time
(altough the web is full of
chronological surprises). But it should be useful even after its
future demise as an EXAMPLE for many
more more or less similar approaches. C'mon friends... ready,
