Searchers after forbidden knowledge haunt strange, far places, falter down black cobwebbed steps beneath the scattered stones of forgotten sites. The haunted pages and the desolate texts are their shrines, and they linger around the sinister javascripts on uninhabited servers. At times the dark elements of strength, solitude, grotesqueness and ignorance combine to form the perfection of the hideous.
In some places of the web have dwelt generations of strange people, whose like the world has never seen.

My fellow seekers have worked mighty wonders everywhere and on the ad hoc messageboard, where they went to long ways in order to find all kind of results, some of them quite useful for general searching and seeking purposes (as anyone that will peruse the old threads will quickly realize).
