> Open/anonymous proxies deliberately have signatures that are almost identical to any
other proxy, so there's no reliable way of knowing based on features of the request.  You
need that list.  Unless someone else maintains it (and you trust them to correctly classify
proxies), you'll have to build it yourself.  If someone else maintains it, you may be able
to use it.
