One of the largest IRC networks still in existence with a laid back administration that provides minimal services but doesn't overwhelm the users with hundreds of *Serv bots. The primary service is X, the channel bot, who provides many options for managers and ops alike.

Undernet is very involved with its users, and holds frequent classes and interesting discussions or interviews in the #class channel. Channels are very hard to register, and therefore if a channel is registered, then it is garunteed to be lively. It has frequent netsplits, but not quite to the caliber of EFnet and DALnet, making it a much more solid network. In general, the help channels on Undernet are often nicer and more humble than EFnet, but still don't be surprised if you get banned for an arbitrary reason. There's always room for improvement.
<Varter> Hey, wanna chat on IRC instead?
<Mancow> Sure, I'll meet you in #tech on Undernet.
<Varter> Nice.

Get the Undernet mug.
The shady underground world of the Internet where most seriously illegal activities are conducted. The Undernet is the "underground of the Internet".
Phishers steal identification data from unsuspecting people and then sell that data on the Undernet, which among other things contains this huge black market operating under the Internet where all kinds of ill-gotten data are bought and sold. The seeds for identity theft are sown on the Undernet.

Get the Undernet mug.
The vast, insidious and unstable domain of the Internet home to the worst depravities and ideals of mankind. Hidden behind the vail of the "Polite Internet," the Undernet is host to the worst and most scarring images ever available to humanity, as well as opinions and ideas from individuals that minds have been cracked and malformed by visits to the Undernet. Self propagating, the Undernet is the fastest growing part of the Internet, and despite the best efforts of the government, grows unchecked. The best way to describe the Undernet is as "online urban blight" or "cyber-pestilence."
Mark: "Hey, check out this website"
Tom: "Okay...holy god in heaven why?"
Mark: "What, it is just German's peeing on babies while driving spikes through their penises?"
Tom: " need a break from the Undernet"

Get the Undernet mug.
The unsanitised area of the internet largely unexplored by normies but still accessible via a regular web browser.
The undernet has all sorts of strange, non-sensical things on it.
