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.

A website where people write wiki articles, about everything that is worthy of being mocked. Every single element of "ED" is hilarious.

Some of the things being satired on "ED" are scientology trolls live journal mudkips furries, and ass pies
ass pies and furries, hate encyclopedia dramatica, because it makes fun of them.

Encyclopedia Dramatica is a joke encyclopedia that embodies the very essence of offensiveness and the phrase "if you can't beat them, join them". It manages to be funny not because of the wit of its writers, but because of the reactions it incites.
I mean seriously, look at the other definitions on urbandictionary that insult Encyclopedia Dramatica. Don't they look familiar?

The best place to get school papers and look up "your mom" on.
I went to Encyclopedia Dramatica and got my paper on Huckleberry Finn. Derp.

Basically a rip off of the much more interesting and hilarious wikisite Uncyclopedia, as in, it's not that interesting or hilarious at all, as is with all rip offs. Often the people who write articles for the site overuse bold font and the word "gay", then end up finding a way to make themselves look dumb.
Note that all the articles are written by people who can't do come backs for shit and using it's "exclusiveness"(much like Gmail was with invites) to avoid the people or fans of whatever subject to reply back, thus, meaning they can't be seen as even more lame then what they already appear to be. But then again, the best way to know a person is a complete cockshit online is to see if they belong to the site.

A wiki created by cool people who make fun of people. They claim to "do it for the lulz." This website is racist, sexist, offensive and most of all, fursecuting. The creators of encyclopedia dramatica rule.
Encyclopedia dramatica's awesome.
