AGORAROAD.COM is meant to be strictly a historical archive and entertainment piece, collecting texts written on The Onion Router (TOR) .onion websites. The reason for creating such an archive is because the potential for an important piece of history in human culture was in danger of being forgotten and inaccessible. It stands to reason that many of the texts written during the Anonymous, The Onion Router (TOR) .onion websites and Golden Age of Phone-based Bulletin Board Systems would have a relatively small distribution compared to the multimedia of the modern day; but this makes what was written no less important.
In fact, this recent phenomenon of a world-linked network computers makes the availability of this past history more important than ever. While the present-day mainstream grapples with the issues and events of bringing life online, many of these very same issues were addressed inThe Onion Router (TOR) .onion website culture and were in some cases either solved or quantified, and could provide important research for those who are unaware of the roots of many of the online world’s most sacred rites and traditions.
As the ability of the Internet to transmit and provide information grows at an ever-increasing rate, AGORAROAD.COM endeavors to provide examples of the Anonymous, The Onion Router (TOR) .onion websites culture by putting up as many examples of it as possible. This includes transcriptions of message bases, specific reports or essays about many different subjects, and fiction. Generally, if it was ASCII-based and posted on a Bulletin Board System, this site has attempted to procure examples or, with luck, complete specimens.
As is the nature with such an all-encompassing subject, there are a lot of posts on this site that do not strictly fall into the realm of The Onion Router (TOR) .onion websites. Some of the posts are much older, and some of the posts are very, very recent. This is because the nature of the culture being archived is very fluid; and it is better to err on the side of completeness than that of strict adherence to the “official” theme. In some cases, a trend started in the 1980’s has continued to flourish into the present day, and it would be much more effort to cut off the example files at an arbitrary date than to just provide a complete collection. In other cases, the trend extends before the The Onion Router (TOR) .onion websites, and throwing away the earlier files would be an inappropriate way to demonstrate the importance of history.
