"This is illegal in most tournaments, and often disapproved of in casual play."

In tournaments, obviously. But I've never had a problem using proxy cards in casual play when other players or I actually owned the card the proxy represents. It can be useful to avoid damage to more valuable cards that is usually sustained during gameplay. Casual players usually trust that no one will cheat by stacking proxies. Not as if there's much to gain by doing so. Does this statement only consider proxies used to represent cards the player does not own?

Business[edit]

"SEC proxy rules: The term "proxy statement" means the statement required by $240.14a-3(a) whether or not contained in a single document."

Could this be in English for the rest of us? I didn't even know there could by 14a cents in US money. — Asbestos | Talk (RFC) 17:20, 20 December 2005 (UTC)

Don't know exactly what it means but moved it to proxy statement. Nurg 10:06, 11 January 2006 (UTC)

Gizlio.com[edit]

hey, i never edited wikipedia, but this open reference to Gizlio.com doesn't seem fair to me! wouldn't it be better to change at least the link to http://dmoz.org/Computers/Internet/Proxying_and_Filtering/Hosted_Proxy_Services/Free/CGI_Proxy/

and anyway, the definition "proxy websites" itself does not sound good to me.... —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 151.47.146.238 (talkcontribs) 20:03, 4 February 2007 (UTC)

Don't worry about it. It's pure spam and it's out now. The existing link to Proxy server is good enough for these purposes. adavidw 05:33, 5 February 2007 (UTC)

legal field[edit]

The word "proxy" is used extensively in the legal field. I have seen it in the context of stockholders giving proxy for shareholders meetings. I have seen it in the context of health care, where one can give over decision making authority for medical decisions. Why aren't these topics better covered in this article? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.167.13.213 (talk) 17:07, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Because you haven't done anything about it except complain. --Helenalex (talk) 09:45, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

definition[edit]

In order to prevent misunderstandings, in the definition there should be a comma behind the word person. Johnbirding (talk) 16:16, 16 April 2013 (UTC)
