Discuss The Deep Web

For those of you who do not know, the Deep Web (also known as Deep Net, Darknet, etc.) is basically the majority of the internet, websites that are not indexed by search engines. I like this quote on the Wiki page from above:

Mike Bergman, founder of BrightPlanet and credited with coining the phrase,[1] said that searching on the Internet today can be compared to dragging a net across the surface of the ocean: a great deal may be caught in the net, but there is a wealth of information that is deep and therefore missed.[2] Most of the Web's information is buried far down on dynamically generated sites, and standard search engines do not find it. Traditional search engines cannot "see" or retrieve content in the deep Web—those pages do not exist until they are created dynamically as the result of a specific search. As of 2001, the deep Web was several orders of magnitude larger than the surface Web.
The Deep Web is pretty fascinating but it also has a dark side. A lot of criminals have taken to it as a means of peddling drugs, guns and even child porn and slaves. Because it's largely unindexed and locked off, it's very difficult to see.

Have you ever heard of the Deep Web? Been there?

I've used TOR browser to check into different Deeb Web sites. There's some pretty messed up stuff down there. I knew about the NSA stuff, for example, before it became public. All of the WikiLeaks stuff is there. There's the stuff you have to stay away from like drug trade, illegal porn, and so on. I even saw a place to hire a hitman for bitcoins! Most of the Deep Web can stay right where it is.
