ID theft problem if hacked.

Not so much lazy, but more apprehensive. Mention Tor to people and the first thing they think of is of using it for illegal activities like buying illicit substances and guns etc.

As above, I think if that were to happen the dark web would need to start getting better press in order to become mainstream.

Exactly. It is one thing to use it on a government website, but another entirely to be at the mercy of a global giant that really couldn't give a fiddlers about ones net security....even if their public face suggests otherwise!

Which hat to wear? Black? Gray? White?

Dark web symbolic fashion and activities: Now there's a research topic to study in terms of its virtual social construction of reality. You would have to enter their hidden field as a participant-observer, which would be problematic indeed.

Modern day Radcliffe-Brown virtually participant-observes dark web? Would his structural functionalism approach work when examining this social construction?

Does "Ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny" (Ernst Haeckel) in the social construction of reality? I'm unsure being halfway between modern structural functionalism (Max Weber) and post-modern deconstructionism (Jacques Derrida).

Modern structure-functionalist position, which has been challenged by post-modern theories and philosophies.

Postmodern Derridean deconstruction of social construction? What's excluded in a social construction? Tells a lot. Points (Jacques Derrida interviews).

Indeed, Jacques Derrida does examine what is missing in a model (e.g., social construction) in the second part of the 1st chapter of Points. You've been doing your homework Fathom.

That's opening a can of worms for all citations of philosophers, sociologists, anthropologists, etc.
