I forgot to mention.  Since it is so easy to try and list every proxy
bypass site, if you can block the ones that show up in lists when you
google, that will be a big deterent.
When I first started blocking these sites, I was watching the logs. 
The kids apparantly went to the same site as me, then tried 3 or 4
sites then quit.   That would lead me to believe 1 of 2 things.  1,
they gave up, figuring all were blocked, or 2, they found a site I
hadn't blocked.  I went further and grepped their IP in the logs, they
didn't go to other bypass blocking sites in the few minutes after
being blocked due to the list.  I think I was fairly successful.
