Honestly, I'm surprised the authorities don't go after the deep web more. I haven't accessed it myself, but from what I know it's a mass home for the most disgusting members of humanity. You could probably arrest loads of criminals with good tracking.


How? Arrest people for using it without being found of any crimes? Its used by the government and it was helped developed by it. Its used for illegal operations along with sending transmissions between spies and covert ops.

They do operate tons of nodes and many websitez within it so if your stupid you can get caught.


"Deep web" is distinct from "dark web". The "dark web" is the encrypted network that exists between Tor servers and their clients possibly with government servers, whereas the "deep web" is simply the content of databases and other web services that for one reason or another cannot be indexed by conventional search engines.

The government didn't develop that. It's just a result of the internet being built the way its been built.

On a side note here: Am I the only one a little disturbed that the FBI was running 23 child porn websites?

I mean, posing as a drug dealer or something for a sting operation is one thing. But running child porn sites?

That seems to cross a line in terms of the "greater good".

Probably more of a matter of tracking down those involved that takes time.

Yeah, true. Pedophiles usually have their privacy settings on max, so considering that it's impressive they caught the actual individuals

Woh, what the fuck? Sadly most pedos don't get hurt in prison, maybe for a bit but they end up charming the big guys and are then used to settle disputes between gangs, the reason they are in there is because they could charm kids, it's fucked up.

i'm worried about how this experience will effect the children's psyche now and in the future...i wonder how locals go about rehabilitating them if at all, and if so how such an experience will shape their ideologies and hatred.

While there's a part of me that agrees with you, there's also the side where I realize that the old motto of "you catch more flies with honey" is applicable here. The FBI didn't start and feed them with child pornography - they took over existing pages and allowed traffic to continue until they were able to determine the individuals that were accessing said material. While that doesn't really make it that much better, the material was already there and concentrated to that page - which meant that the FBI wasn't obtaining new images/videos to upload.

I get where you're coming from, though. The fact that they left the material accessible for a period of time to catch people is on that gray line of the "greater good". I'm a bit torn myself but I understand why they did what they did here. Cutting off complete access to this material would have been ideal - but then the culprits who download and "use" (ew) the material would have escaped from the clutches of the law. My concern is whether or not they allowed additional content to be uploaded without focusing on those users specifically. It's bad enough if they allowed new content during their "sting" operation... but if those assholes weren't on the front line of being prosecuted/caught, that would leave a bitter taste in my mouth for sure.
