Went back and looked up history. I remember seeing that thread and thinking it was strange. Now I think it is sleazy at best, and if your listening in China or wherever, it will impact purchasing decisions

No, really the only thing that gets tracked is your registration IP, and every other IP address you ever used when you logged in. It also shows other users with that same IP which, more than likely, are the same person. Many ISP's have pretty static IP's (comcast, for instance), but some assign a few different one's. I can also see what browser you use, and what operating system you use. If you're surfing in the middle of the day from your laptop in the truck or on the jobsite, I can see that you're using a broadband card. If you log in with a mobile device, I can normally see the brand and model of your mobile phone. That's about it.

If a user is causing problems, and they're logged in through a known proxy server (I can look up the IP), they pretty much get banned as someone who purposely wants to cause trouble. There's no real other reason to use a proxy server.
There is one other use for a proxy; to get around schools' internet filters.
