As already mentioned, you need to download TOR in order to get to the dark side of the internet. "Deep web" is a different thing. I have, out of
curiosity, gone to the dark web, and found it quite disturbing, I visited some of my language sites (general discussion), and the stuff on there was
terrible. And there were ads for hitmen etc. So I haven't been there since. Only thing mildly interesting is hacking and leaks, which I did once get
from Anonymous (or was it Lulsec), days before it hit the news (just to check I wasn't on there, which I wasnt)

Ok, now that is really weird. I have just found out about the existence of this "dark web", or "deep web" yesterday. Now I check ATS every day,
and I have not been very active on here for a while. However, I find it incredibly coincidental that I have never seen any mention of the deep web on
ATS and I had just discovered it yesterday from a fellow I met on Omegle. Now, the reason I bring this up is that I see a possibility that this may be
some new trending thing going around, like the Sandy Hook conspiracy video that I get asked about on Omegle more and more out of the blue.
So, my theory is that the growing popularity of all of these topics that were previously unkown to most are becomming more and more commonplace due to
things spreading through Facebook and chat rooms like Omegle.
Has anyone else noticed this strange new trend?
Nope, I check ATS every now and then, and saw this today, I've known about the dark web for ages, so no coincidence there.
If you check ATS daily, you may have noticed this thread yesterday (when it was posted), and then subconciously found out about it through however you
found out about it. Nothing weird there.
