An _actual_ intellectual dark web would be cool. Like a BBS or a Tor site where academics and intellectuals would congregate and keep out all the peanut gallery sorta like USENET in the 90s.

@rizzn eh, Usenet still exits, bbs/telnet still exists, tor sites still exist. Same for retroshare, i2p and RSS-only streams. Oh, and I think a lot of academics and intellectuals still congregate using IRC. So, you want something else apart of that? Well, we also have ZeroNet based sites.

@AvatarX They all still exist, but the feeling is completely different from back then.

@rizzn Well, yes. But that was an unavoidable scenario. But would you say that I2P, Retroshare and Zeronet feel the same?
