DicdefEdit

Article is currently a WP:DICDEF. Rewording to "Clearnet is the part of the web..." rather than "a term for" would help, but I'm skeptical this has broad support (since I've never heard of it until now). Might be best to redirect this and include what little material there is in the Darknet article? — Rhododendrites talk \\ 18:26, 8 June 2015 (UTC)

Will try and get some more citations, will turn into a dictionary term if it's still no good afterwards. Deku-shrub (talk) 08:54, 9 June 2015 (UTC)

The term dates to at least as early as 2010. I would include that citation, but it only exists inside Freenet. I may try and find a stable clearnet portal that I can use to provide a link. As an aside, there has actually been some work within the Freenet community to find the earlier, documentable uses of the word, because most of us remember hearing it much before then.

Non-traditionalEdit

@X1\: Greetings! Regarding this edit: [1]...forgive me if I'm missing something incredibly obvious, but my understanding of what you are saying is:

  • The surface web is indexed by standard search engines
  • The clearnet is indexed by standard search engines
  • The clearnet is indexed by traditional search engines

The article seemed to be saying "the clearnet is not indexed by traditional search engines", which is why I removed the negation. Am I misunderstanding something? Thanks. -- Beland (talk) 02:50, 13 August 2019 (UTC)

@Beland: maybe I am misunderstanding something. The run-on sentence confuses me. I've self-reverted an will leave it at that. X1\ (talk) 20:53, 14 August 2019 (UTC)
OK, I attempted to clarify. -- Beland (talk) 04:16, 15 August 2019 (UTC)

@Deku-shrub: please elaborate, instead of just an ES of "wrong". X1\ (talk) 20:15, 17 August 2019 (UTC)
