Proximo Doesn't Show Up

For the longest time, I've had trouble with the addon Proximo. One day, it just completely stopped showing up.

I searched and searched, completely unable to find out how to fix it. Finally, today, I emailed the addon's creator, Grayhoof. Here's what he said:
When not in the game, delete the Proximo.lua file from your saved variables folder. It should be in:

C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\WTF\Account\ACCOUNT_NAME\SavedVariables
I tried it, and it worked! Special thanks to Grayhoof for personally responding to my inquiry. The world needs more people like you. :-)

For those of you who don't know, Proximo is an addon that helps you in arenas. It gives you a frame (shown above), that gets populated with your opponents. Whenever you, or anyone on your team with Proximo installed, hovers over or targets an enemy in an arena, that enemy gets added to the list. You can then select any enemy by clicking on his/her name in the Proximo window.

So the other day I was running Heroic Botanica. We downed one of the early bosses, and an epic gem dropped that had something like +4 resist all, or +6 resist all, something like that.

Four out of the five of us in the group uttered their own variation of "/sigh, crap lootz" etc.

And then a mage in the party said, "I'm rolling need on that. I'm resist specced."

I lol'ed at first, and then all of a sudden, he rolled /need! I thought to myslef, "Is this guy serious?" So I inspected his gear, he had all sorts of resist gear, and all his sockets were filled with resistance gems!

Everybody else in the party was thinking the same thing: wtf is resist spec? The mage went on to say that he resists lots of spells, and gets mana back every time he does (Magic Absorption talent).

Has anybody seen or heard about that before? There's no way that build has any kind of success!

Is there?!
