There are many more proxies than clients, so the chance that any one
proxy gets a client is small. Don't be discouraged if you don't see a
light blue badge, because it happens rarely. We claimed in the paper
that having lots of legitimate, but unused, proxies helps defend against
some attacks on the facilitator by malicious proxies. You are still
helping, even if nobody is using your badge.
