    Kid stumbles onto TorBrowser.

    http://www.thisisgrimsby.co.uk/Dark-...ail/story.html


    This story is so full of shit.

    For one you do not become a programmer and not know what tor is.

    Secondly you do not find tor AND the silkroad by accident.

    Thirdly this guy seems confused on why the law doesn't immediately shut down the tor network now that hes reported it to the cops.

    I'm pretty sure they were just wanting attention.

    Isnt Tor about keeping your info private while surfing the web? I dont really see it as the dark web, I thought that was Usenet. Just go to craigslist if you want most illegal stuff. It isnt tha difficult to find bad things on line.

    Silkroad is unique in a lot of ways.

    That story is full of holes, you don't stumble across these websites or torbrowser without intentionally searching for it.

    Tor does that, yes. However it also harbors some of the most illegal shit you could find on the internet.

    A proxy service, that uses user-established servers around the world to hide your identity.

    OT: It has already been said, one does not have TOR unless you have searched directly for it.

    It also makes me question the father.

    Ah, so it's like Piratebay on steroids?

    I do understand the wish and respect the pursuit for information freedom and privacy, but some times I feel that the digital pirates take this ideal to the extreme.
