As by the curiosity of deep web I have been finding more on different type of onion URLs and the contents found inside the deep web from which most of the people are unknown by this topics.But one of the topics came across named Red Room which is very fascinating but actually it is a myth because until now there no evidence, but my search in deep web still continues.But it could be still true in case of ISIS red room because some of the evidence have been found but later at one point it still proves to be fake.But first you should know what is Red Room and some of the concepts of deep web.
Detail Study of Red Room :
A Red Room is a composite urban legend. It is allegedly a hidden website or service on the “Deep Web” where you can see and/or participate in interactive torture or murder. It is essentially the snuff film legend retold for the YouTube era. It is similar to other moral panics involving the so-called Deep Web in that it was made popular by uncritical reports provided by both traditional and social media. The phenomenon is an example of the Woozle effect where publications are continuously built upon misleading citations.
In the early 2000s, the Red Room animation went live, becoming infamous in Japanese internet communities for a popup it produced asking ‘Do you like —?’ This was further cemented into the Japanese consciousness by the real life Sasebo slashing perpetrated by a girl who had played the game.
Chain letters, chain emails and viral Facebook images have often promised deadly consequences for the recipient or a another person should they fail to pass on their message within the specified constraints. And yes, this has been made into a film too.
In August 2015, Facebook and Twitter’s default video player settings led for many users to witness a murder uploaded by its perpetrator just minutes after it had occurred due to the platform’s autoplay settings.
With the rise of social media jihadists, beheadings of western journalists by ISIS were increasingly in the news, videos spreading simply via Twitter and basic social media channels, have created a sickening association between the internet and images of gruesome death. From Rotten.com to contemporary sites like Know Your Meme, people are increasingly obsessed with seeing death on the internet.
Lurid tales of hitman services and human experimentation combined with the reality of darknet markets and child porn sites created a new substrate for a meme to be reborn.
Since the popularization of the Deep Web myth, people have sworn they have ‘stumbled’ upon Red Rooms, or that their friend’s cousin who totally works for the NSAsaw one.
The alleged existence of such websites are perpetuated by Youtubers such as Takedownman and SomeOrdinaryGamers as well as a vast number of intrigued would-be-fans on social media forums. The main driver of the speculation appears to be an alleged hidden web service called ‘The Human Experiment,’ accessible via Tor. As of writing, there is no evidence of this website existing.
In August 2015, there was a minor social media buzz when an advertisement for a “Red Room” was spread via Reddit and other channels with a countdown to the release of a video that would allegedly depict the live execution of ISIS prisoners. What was delivered instead was a troll video and a fake FBI take-down notice.
So believe it or not but the execution is going on somewhere in deep web so let’s find out…..
