A website dedicated to parodying mainly popular things on the internet, in the style of Wikipedia. Stuff they have articles on include memes and macros, amongst others. They also have articles on chatspeak, popular websites, and usergroups. Their articles usually contain little actual facts, and make little to no sense IRL. The site has been bashed for many reasons, due to it's innapropriate, borderline porn-site content, and making fun of topics often seen as serious. They mean it when they say they "do it for the lulz" (which is a popular phrase with users). However, the site was obviously not meant to be taken seriously, as many people will probably tell others who seem enraged by it. However, many also view Encyclopedia Dramatica as "going too far", because many times they not only parody certain topics, but spam and hack websites relating to that topic and post their content and opinions on there, too. They even poke fun at certain users on certain websites, these users often furious at what is said about them.
Personally, I find some of the content on ED (as it is commonly abbreviated) funny, even hilarious at times. However, some content does seem offensing if it bashes things I like or do. If this happens, I just remind myself it is only a website, and proceed to do something else. I know it sounds corny, but that's my advice to you if you are ever pissed off by that site. Remember, if you hate someone, but they haven't done anything illegal, you can't get them arrested. Same goes for ED. If you can't handle ED, you shouldn't look on there, and if you can't avoid it, then throw your modem out the window because you can't handle the internet. Note, however, that users who are parodied on there may experience different emotions due to users often flaming them when they object.
ED even has an IRC chat room, but I am a noob therefore I do not go in it. You might wanna though. I have no idea what's in there and no intention of finding out.
Just one more thing: THE SITE IS NOT SAFE FOR WORK I AM DEAD SERIOUS DO NOT SURF IT ON A PUBLIC COMPUTER.
Another thing, if you are squemish or offended easily by pictures, do not go on their either. Almost every page links to a page with a "disturbing" pic.
I bet the people from Encyclopedia Dramatica will give this definition thumbs down because it says not to take it seriously.

The core of all internet hate.
What ever you do, do not go on Encyclopedia dramatica's "offended" page. This is for your own good.

A severely biased and somehwat cruel wikipedia for the internet (among other things). Though written in a sardonic voice tends to have at least a grain of truth in what's written.
This feud would eventually cause each author to take out her frustration on her friend's cameo character out of spite. Raven by way of grade demotion and disposition change - Tara by way of expulsion, death, and postmortem rape. Moar quotes:



“BTW Willow that fucking poser got expuld. she failed al her klasses and she skepped math.” (an: RAVEN U FUKIN SUK! FUK U!) Maybe Willow will die too.” I said.

“Kawai.” B’loody Mair shook her head enrgtically lethrigcly. “Oh yeah o have a confession after she got expuld I murdered her and den loopin did it with her cause he’s a necphilak.”

“Kawai.” I commnted happily .

God Internate
Our Encyclopedia Dramatica in heaven,
hallowed be your name.
Your kingdom come,
your troll be done,
on internets as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily lulz,
and forgive us our 4chan boards,
as we also have forgiven our haters.
And lead us not into exposure,
but deliver us from fail.

Where the hate goes to rest at night. Encyclopedia Dramatica was founded to sit as an internet bestriding colossus over those whose self-important faggotry leads to Wiki-wars and LiveJournal feuds, people who get self-righteous and moralistic at the use of the word faggot, those that cry like little babies when someone points out that seeking sexual gratification through highly detailed drawings of anthromorphic animals in diapers is basically just fucked in the head, and fuckwits that cut themselves on MySpace. Die all of you bitches.
I could ask for arbitration and get ignored by your self interested little clique on your self-absorbed little social encyclopedia, or I could go over to Encyclopedia Dramatica and point out what a weird little transsexual you are, and that you are not at all afraid to admit to writing pedo-slash and long essays on why you're not a bad person just because you want to fuck children.

Imagine if The Onion made a satirical version of Wikipedia and you're halfway there. Effectively breaking rules 1 and 2 of the internet, it's also the first stop for anyone who doesn't understand all memes on 4chan.
Farrakh: You know, I usually only go to Encyclopedia Dramatica for it's pictures.
