While TOR is fun for spoofing and flaming, it's still very insecure. Anyone on the TOR network can capture and view information going across their network. What does that mean? Any passwords or information passed in clear text (aka NON-SSL) can be captured. Your ATS login is non-ssl for example. Any IM conversations routed through the TOR network can be captured and viewed. If you use a VoIP soft phone on your computer (Not to be confused with Skype), your voice conversations can be captured and listened to.
People feel TOR is the Holy Grail of privacy.. However think twice before you use it. It may not be as private as you think.
Thanks for this, very informative. This is the procedure I am going to follow. You seem to have some experience, if possible can you post a few examples of what kind of things you can find?
I cannot access any sites, when my TorButton is "green". why? I can't even answer here on ATS.

I see no difference than a p2p search engine. Or p2p sharing of download upload of files. You don't have to have the whole file on your computer for some one else to start downloading from you so you get multiple download locations even though only a few might have the complete file.

Personally I happen to find these sites to be intriguing EXCLUDING the child porn. However I know these places as the Hacker Underground. My friends find them to be protected by these so called "security viruses". They check your IP address with a list of "approved addresses" and if you are not on the list, the site gives you a destructive virus when you attempt to access it.
Supposedly you have to know the right people (often black hats according to some people) to gain successful access to these sites.
