It does not block anything. All it does is break you out of a frame nothing more. If you are sent to a site within a frame technicaly the proxy then can record what ever you input (i.e. account information). While many don't there are still some that do. All it takes is 1 bad proxy. Why take the chance? If you consider 4k wasting space well ok.

Stopping proxies all together is a completly different scenario. Apples and oranges. Here we are just trying to stop potential account hijacking not block banned users or stop users from spoofing their IP address.
