Why would they scare you?
Proxies are really helpful, personally.

I know that they help to prevent some common attacks, but setting everything up is so cumbersome. There is no single way and if some library developer didn't think of it you struggle for days. We recently needed to dig through source code from alpine Linux to make apk add work...
In aws you need to restart the docker deamon to make it work behind a proxy. Luckily we had some genius who figured that one out.
