Yes, I was suggesting running a VPN out of the house. I understand that that wouldn't provide the kind of anonymity that some people are looking for, but it would eliminate the other problems I mentioned. Depending on what you need a VPN for it could be simplest, most secure and most cost effective solution. It seems to me when you subscribe to a VPN service you can never be completely certain about logging, etc, regardless of the stated policies. There's an inherent contradiction in relying on people you don't know (and who only know you as $$) to provide you with security.
