Re: Ease of Use
@Dr. T  It's a shame, that great privacy technologies get a bad name because they're being used by criminals. Hopefully enough good guys use encryption to help it resist the same stigma.

Re: Ease of Use
I hear you. Using TOR does not mean you break the law. That is not different that doing PGP for your email communication with your friends. It becomes a problem if we use TOR for illegal and unethical purposes.

Re: Ease of Use
I agree, ate the same time once you set the TOR up it is not going to be difficult for non-technical people using it I would say.

Re: Difficult
I agree. When we start using TOR for unethical and illegal purposes, that will cost us shutting down  the service all together. There are reason whew need to encrypt our communication, it does not have to be about doing something wrong.

Deep and Dark web
Obviously people use web anonymously and they want to feel safe while they are trying to hide something from rest. Internet has lots of benefits but it comes with these types of cost such as being a vehicle to do unethical and illegal stuff, which is unfortunate part of it.

Re: Ease of Use
The terrifying fact is that it's sooo simple to access the Deep Web using Tor... You don't have the feelign to break the law when you go on.

Ease of Use
For me, that last nugget is the most interesting. TOR and methods similar use to be something that was outside the comprehension of the non-techie. But as stated, if ransomware victims are using it to make payments then its introducing more and more people to the deep web. However, I would have to think that the payment functionality introduced is much more simple than some of the other intricacies involved with TOR, etc.

Difficult
The deep web is a difficult thing to quantify existing. It needs to, as it has plenty of uses outside of horrific crimes (legally and morally), but it's hard not to argue for better ways of finding those behind the terrible sites out there. 

The only problem is that weakening Tor would have a big knock on effect on innocents that use it as a way to communicate safely when being watched by tyranical regimes, so it's difficult to know what to do.
