There are many forums/boards with people sharing files and info that is not so easily attained on the regular web.
Some people won't upload anything without doing it through those boards because they don't want it easily accessible to just anyone.
There are also forums just like this one where people like to get together and discuss things in there own little private community. And they
wouldn't talk about these things on the regular web.
That's why it is used by Wikileaks, Anon and many others. There are whole hacking communities that discuss and share info about all sorts of things.
As I was trying to state before, it is not just an evil underground like some are making it out to be. Are there those evil areas? Sure..do you click
links to take you there if you want to? Sure.
Most boards are labeled in categories and if you don't want to visit them then don't. But there just isn't an easy way to find "stuff" you are
looking for since nothing is indexed through a search engine. By categories I mean things like, Social, Software, Warez, Hacking, Literature,
WikiLeaks, Hidden services, News/History, Whistleblowing, Anonymous Finance, Documents, Chat etc.
Have a look at these boards....
is an attempt at a .onion search engine but it never works at all for me.
And even Torgle has this little disclaimer at the bottom of their search page..."BTW, don't try to search for kiddie porn here. Requests and/or
known sites are subject to censorship, you hopefully won't find any. "
Hope that helps.
