The OP's post actually has a link to the Tor site. Maybe I'm being overcautious, but I'm not gonna repeat that link. Reread the opening post.
Tor's website actually has a pretty good description of how it works. Tor was invented by the Navy. It has all kinds of legitimate uses.
There are places to set up anonymous encrypted emails, it's a way for say an anonymous source to contact the police or a journalist without exposing
themselves. There are many other legitimate uses too.
Personally...I'm paranoid enough that any time someone especially on here links a link to say...Al Jazeera, I will only go there on tor. Even though
Al Jazeera is a world renown respected news agency, I'm too paranoid of my actual IP address being linked with that site. The same with something
like RT or similar.
Reread the opening post and find that link if you wanna know more. Usually the trouble comes from people looking for it..not it looking for them. Just
like in real life. So the top layers of the deep web aren't too bad. But...I'm not gonna say any more about this. I'm sorry. I understand you
wanting to know and learn this, but my opinion is there is too much stuff even on the top layer...if I explained how to get there I'm afraid I'd be
in violation of ATS's T&C. Just because of general principals.
Good luck with the search...and be careful there if you get there. But to quote Forrest Gump..."that's all I'm gonna say about that."
