I like your op better though...
What is the Hidden wiki any way? I have never heard of it.
edit on 25-10-2011 by TsukiLunar because: (no reason given)
The hidden wiki is a website on the deep web (aka hidden web). The dark web is something that needs a special browser to go onto, as the major ones
don't go to the links. To access it you need a browser called TOR. The deep web is used for a lot of illegal activity, but because of the TOR
browser, and other anonymity programs, it is very difficult to find who is accessing the site.
What happens when you use those browsers, is your pc goes through another pc, which goes through another and so on. Because of all the proxies, it
makes it very difficult to say for certainty, what PC has gone to the site, opposed to when you go to a normal website, you can be tracked VERY
easily, by both your browser, and ISP.
I have been to the deep web before to check it out and after browsing the hidden wiki, it seemed at first glance to be VERY easy to find kiddie porn
websites (I did not go to ANY of them myself, but quickly and easily discovered links that claimed to go to them). A lot of stuff on the hidden wiki
seems to be for show however. From what I hear, the deep web has more data than the web that is known about by the average person. Most of the sites
however, are not advertised, are very difficult to find, and you need to be given permission to view them.
The deep web isn't all bad though. Its just another spot that people go to, to be anonymous (since 4chan isn't TRUELY anonymous, since your ISP
knows you are going there. It has discussion boards, and a lot of the stuff that you can find on the open web, just with the added perk of nobody
knowing who you are.
If anyone has any questions about the deep web, just ask, and if I know the answer, I will let you know.
- The 40 websites being taken down is a HUGE step in the right direction, and is a great way for anonymous to put themselves in a good light. They
have a bad reputation from the MSM, (even so far as to be called a terrorist organization) and its things like this that will hopefully make people
realize that they want what everyone else does.
