Top message: The DEEP Web by Poison Ivy
Replying to: BOOREED by x2
So check it. Supposedly the internet is made up of about 10 layers of navigation or immersion. Just like an ocean.
Google, Amazon, Facebook, all those pages that are widespread and know by all are placed on the first layer or level of internet navigation. This level can be accessed by anyone owning a computer and internet access. It's the crisp clear layer of water you can float on without a care in the world.
Then, riiight below the surface you find the under-web. This one is also easily accessible by anyone, you just have to spend a lot more time online. This layer is mainly full of little known forums/webpages that a select group knows about or even cares about. You can find specialized discussion on Government conspiracies, pop culture cults, and porn. This level is were most of the internet memes are born.
You can lurk more and go even deeper, but, you won't actually leave the under-web. You see, the Deep Web, just like deep sea levels, can only be accessed with special equipment, or in this case, special programs.
TOR is one of the most mainstream ones, but just like that one there is plenty more that will grant you access to the Deep Web.
What will you finds there? Well most people agree that it's a nest for illegal activities Poison Ivy mentioned:
* Hired killers
* Illegal porn
* Human Trafficking
* Organ trafficking
* Black Market
They say that by accessing the Deep Web alone can get you into Government watch lists.
Other say that it's the safest way to travel the WWW since you can't be tracked so easily.
Either way accessing it ain't easy and navigating it can be dangerous and frustrating since you actually have to know the servers to access them. It's pretty easy to end up on the wrong side of the Deep Web, not that there's a Right Side anyway.
I've never been there myself. I know some people that claim they did but when prompted for an explanation they always give out the same:
"Illegal and sick stuff. Not going back again."
If you still want to access it all I would say is that it could create repercussions, especially by the U.S. Government. But then again, what do I know, I've never been there...
