The dark web was mostly places like "Silk Road," and they've been shut down AFAIK.

Silk Road was a good place to get counterfeit foreign ID, although it was mostly useful only as ID for buying booze in college towns and opening bank accounts in Switzerland, where you have to "prove" you're not subject to U.S. Tax reporting in order to avoid the Swiss giving your ID to the IRS.

I don't know where the "dark" web is now, or if it's still up, but any precaution you would take when buying something on a strange site that's available on the usual web would apply times 10,000 for any "dark web" site.

Deep Web and Dark Web are two separate thing. The only reason they become synonymous to one another is because media reporting.

Deep Web is basically anything you store and only accessible by the use of proper login for example your emails is part of deep web because it require you to provide login credential to accessing them.

Back to your question now. Unless your communication traffic to your group require the use of Onion Routing (dark web) or you kept files there, I don't see any need to use it in relation to prepping. Furthermore if you are someone who need to routing your communication traffic with Onion Routing and keeping files hidden in dark web than you won't be asking this question in the first place.

If a Belorussian hooker or 2kg of Meth was essential for your preps then the dark web would be useful but no doubt illegal if not immoral.
The Deep Web (cringe) has its legal and very valid uses but so far I have not discovered anything enlightening in the survivalist sphere.

I think basic knowledge of onion and other more secure forms of encrypted conversation are likely useful.

I agree. But, people should not comment beyond their knowledge. Misinformation will cause problems for people who use it.

Isn't that what internet forums were made for?
It seems to be the most common use.

You might wanna try Quora.com, a successful troll there do get paid. Not sure how much but they do have a special paying program for it.

Another option would be managing an internet forum yourself, where you can unleash troll accounts to draw more traffic (more ads revenue)

Platform such as Facebook will also pay for "agitator"

More rumors, still no actual "help wanted" ads.
