 Replying to [ticket:3750 freevps]:
 > Is there some on-line service/site like http://hidemyass.com/, to proxy
 throw tor http request's?

 Turning tor into a web service proxy is a bad idea for user anonymity and
 privacy. The web proxy then gets to see all of your requests and who you
 are. There are a number of these websites out there that supposedly point
 http/https proxy requests to tor. It's also a bad idea from the server
 side. The ISP hosting the server and the owner of the server also get to
 see all of the user traffic along with where they are in the world.
