    ...“But in what's in reality happening is during that transmission process, a skimmer is acting in between where you put your card in and the point of sale terminal that's transmitting the data to a financial institution and they're stealing your payment card numbers.”

    This is the dark side? We thought the dark side was the deep web? You know the place you can only access through using TOR.

    Yup, its the dark side alright, but if you are talking about "The Onion Router," it makes up the other half. Also, the link in the OP (original post) had this to say about anonymity...


    ...The lesson of history is that people don’t need to be anonymous in order to dehumanise and commit atrocities against fellow human beings, that’s the first point.

    The second point is that there are lot of assumptions about the role that anonymity plays in the situation more broadly; it’s a very depressing and distressing assumption that you give a person a mask and you know that they’re just two clicks away from engaging in the worst kinds of behaviour imaginable, and to an extent, especially seeing how many terrible things are undertaken by anonymous actors online, that seems intuitively true.

    We've seen numerous trolls on other popular pro black instagram accounts. It seems that when the content is positive they are nowhere to be found. But when we compare or show us better than white people for example "black don't crack" they are offended. This will be noted when we become more popular.
