    You may, perhaps, have heard of the 'darknet'-this is large portions of the internet which is inaccessible to the public, and contains some quite horrific stuff. As the mainstream internet seems to plumb the very depths of human depravity, the darknet most likely contains things which used to only be available in large, padlocked books bound in human skin.

    Let me remind you that the 'vanilla' internet is an unending helter-skelter of evil, where a pair of young women doing the most debased things imaginable into a cup is considered a harmless, pop-culture 'meme', and borderline work-friendly entertainment. This darknet, therefore, must consist entirely of images, videos and multimedia documents which would make Hieronymus Bosch ill. Apparently, it relies on something known as an 'onion router' to prevent those who are not terribly good at computers from accessing it. This is so-called because it has many layers, makes you cry and combines well with liver in the most repulsive way imaginable.

    I therefore ask you to say what things you imagine could be seen there. Since the normal internet contains dozens of images of dead celebrities, it is logical that the darknet will allow you to, if equipped with a sufficiently good 3d printer, manufacture your own dead celebrity. However, it is inadvisable to do so since it uses up 586 ink cartridges. Not that I'd know. There are also extensive documents relating to a sex act known as 'pengress.' It is impossible to describe, but nor is it possible to unsee it. Again, I wouldn't know, of course.

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/2009/nov/26/dark-side-internet-freenet I feel that that article gives a brief description of it.

    Clearly, I don't endorse getting freenet, or using it to get access to information which is illegal. Incidentally, wonder why that article doesn't give a link to a freenet download?

    So is everything on the darknet illegal? Googling suggests that whilst it can be used for illegal activities, it can also be used for groups that just want privacy?

    I severely doubt that all of it is illegal, in fact I doubt that more than a small portion of it is. However, as I was bringing up the illegal examples, I felt I should have that disclaimer.

    actually it's more like private networks that you can access via VPN and uses P2P technology. It's main characteristic is anonymity. IP addresses are hidden so you can easily distribute illegal content. Funny thing that it was mentioned. I'm studying about networks all day and there was a section about VPN and filesharing networks that are private :slapface:

    I've seen some pretty messed up things on the normal (?) internet, and I never want to see anything like that again. So of course I would strongly advise that none of you stray any further into those realms... but DDM is right. You won't know until you see it for yourself and probably lose your breakfast. Or, you could listen to me.

    So how do I access it then? If you don't want to post it here PM me, I am very curious to see what it is all about...

    I have no idea. What I spoke of was but the regular internet.

    The regular internet is depraved enough for me, to be honest. I also somehow doubt the "darknet" will be quite as satisfying as you might think; I don't think it will be some weird, black-coloured browser, with naked pictures flying out at you every time you so much as move the mouse. xD

    Nope, since that website you just mentioned is available on the regular internet. And there's instructions on how to make various kinds of bombs on the vanilla internet too... apparently napalm's really, really easy...

    Yeah napalm is essentially vaseline and one other ingredient I think. Reaaaaly simple; but I don't want to try in case I get it wrong. xD

    I heard polystyrene (the stuff you get in packages when they're too cheap for bubblewrap...) and petrol does the trick. Again, I don't want to try it as even if I get it right I'd have a highly toxic, sticky, ultra-flammable substance that's apparently very difficult to get out of clothes...

    Besides the obvious racist metaphor, I would expect the whole 'Darknet' to be like /b/ but exponentially worse. Like if you mixed Goatse and the most disgusting guro possible before dividing by zero.

    Its not as cool as it sounds. Just look at 4chan and imagine 4chan but with 500% more child pornography and lots of virus's.

    Huzzah...[/sarcasm] There's something between vanilla and disgusting rape-porn but people seem to be either total prudes or monsters. Humanity always deals in extremes and I've always been a go between in everything it seems.

    The way the article describes it though I'm already on "DarkNet" with some sites I visit but I would hardly call them "dark"; just almost impossible to reach for those not in the know.

    With my usual single mindedness when it comes to plumbing new depths of perversion I managed to access this darknet (not apparently the proper term according to wikipedia), specifically through the .onion layers.

    Verdict: :thumbsdown:

    Yes you have access to pretty much everything you can think of illegally. I saw links to child porn like they were normal :mad2: as well as how to make bombs, buy drugs etc. That wasn't the entire sum of it, there was lots of normal non-sickening stuff, though why they need to hide it down there is beyond me.

    As for those people who think this is a whole new wonder land of porn - don't bother. Assuming your not into anything illegal, then its much easier to find things on the normal net. Plus the most of the sites down there don't stream as the speed isn't good enough (it take bloody ages for every page to load, it was like being on dial up again), so you would have to download everything anyway, and in that case you may as well put a virus on your computer yourself.

    Then again, probably a good place for me to hide my plans of perverted world domination......:devil2:

    Don't say I didn't warn you.

    You know, I bet that beneath the darknet is another net, hidden beneath hundreds of .carrot and .brocolli layers, called the ponynet, filled to the brim with tolerance and love.
    Makes me sick just thinking about it.

    Yeah, I've got a friend that accessed the deepnet before (another term for it) and he said it was nothing special.

    It can't possibly be worse than /b/ at midnight.

    ...

    Can it?
