A website dedicated to parody
ing 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
. 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 site where rejects from Wikipedia
who prefer stereotypical bitching over factual information post the most meaningless shit you will ever see in your entire life.
Go to Encyclopedia Dramatica and look up some band. This is what you'll see.
"(Band name here) is a piece of shit band thats gay and sucks dick. Here is a picture of one of the band members having gay sex. Please note that this is NOT photoshopped. *Photoshopped picture here*"
They claim that wikipedia has no good information that revolves around the internet or internet culture. But what they don't realize is that Wikipedia is a fucking online encyclopedia, unlike UrbanDictionary which is a site where people like me post their opinions rather than real information. Wikipedia is for real information that will help you out in real life with things such as reports or research.
In short, Encyclopedia Dramatica sucks.
Encyclopedia Dramatica... failure in it's purest form.
A website claiming to be satirical, but in fact it is just used by fourteen year old losers to insult anything they dislike.
Teenage boy - "I use encyclopedia dramatica to spread hate speech about everything, but it's ok because I do it for the lulz!!!!"
s of the internet. They lash out at anything and anyone, but they do it for the lulz, so it's all good.
Teh lulz are above even the spagetti monster, and Encyclopedia Dramatica proves this.
If funny were to dig it's self a grave on the internet, Encyclopedia Dramatica would be it's graveyard.
Encyclopedia Dramatica is about as funny as reading an article in your newspaper about 37 infants being stabbed to death in the hospital that's 4 miles away from you.
of the Internet. It just doesn't go away.
At least 100 years ago, over 9000, niggers, watermelon, gratuitous antisemitism, 4chon, 1justin, lulz, encyclopedia dramatica is legion
A former comedy site. Used to be a good satire of everything Internet-related, including itself, but the massive amount of /b/tards turned it into a pile of troll bullshit, worshipping 'the lulz'(AKA douchebaggery) and hating on women, homosexuals, and furries. Now little more than 4chan's bitch, constantly following it in every of its actions. Has been known to cause the destruction of quite a lot of lives. As in IRL lives.
And if you feel bad for anyone that has been trolled, then you're a butthurt emo gay moralfag who BAWWWWWWWWWs. If the trolled person happens to be a woman, you're also an anti-lulzy White Knight because they're all 'asking for it'.
Hilarious, I know.
You can still notice old stains of funny in their article on deviantART, provided it hasn't already been completely ruined by trolls as you're reading this.
"<insert name here> is an emo gay Jew nigger furry faggot attention whore that should an hero." -Average Encyclopedia Dramatica article
A website that is home to many trolls
many of which are self righteous assholes where little to nothing can meet up to their prissy standards. No internet culture can have a forum, imageboard, or website without one or more of these guys complegtely losing it all over and start meaningless, whiney complaints all over the fandom or interest of others.
Not a single one will tell you, but they are all the weeaboo
s, and gangsta
s they all flame and burn. They all claim what they all bitch about is all is so horrible that they have no choice but to watch it all and then go bat shit when something doesn't quite tickle the log shoved firmly up their clenched asses. To stare at things they don't like, bitch and gripe about it on the internet, and then do it again is all these no-life slimeballs can think about doing. It is not uncommon to find some nerd there who can name 101 emos who commited suicide or recite 2, the Ranting Gryphon's rants by heart. It is plain common sense, however, that no one hooks up their internet, turns on their computer, logs in and opens up a broswer, slips on a fucking banana peel, and ends up watching girls eat their own shit and not want to.
They're even reading this webpage too, and in the next month or two, their going to post it on EA...
