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 website that I'm very ashamed TVtropes has linked to it. It's made me slightly disappointed in TVTropes...

It defines memes, viral videos, internet terms and all sorts of useful stuff, but you can't read it without being annoyed. (Or, laughing, if you laugh at trolls). For some reason, every article on encyclopedia dramatica always seem to be bashing somebody or something. Encyclopedia dramatica has bashed everything at some point.

Do not go there for a straight definition. If you do want to get an actual definition, squint and read between the lines.

Be careful to what you link to. You click on something that seems innocent, and find a horrifying picture/article that makes your brain break into a hundred pieces, hit itself with a hammer, and light itself up on fire.

They also have massive ads, flash, and other horrible things that you don't want on your computer.
I went to encyclopedia dramatica to read their article on fail and read a bashing on about everybody I know.

I went to encycopedia dramatica to find out about something, clicked on a normal sounding linked, and got mindraped by the picture before me.

Encyclopedia Dramatica was a website meant to chronicle memes, LiveJournal bullshit and 4chan related events. In the years following its founding in 2004, the site became a notorious cesspit of admin brown nosing, childish name calling, racism, and spiteful, obsessive trolling that often spilled into real life, and ruined many people's lives (deserved or not) in the name of "lulz".

EDiots (members of the site) were whiny /b/tard wannabes, they saw themselves as Internet Police, enforcing their vision of conformity (being a 16 year old L33T EP1C W1N H4XX0R!!11eleven) with the threat of being made fun of (this, ironically, under the guise of "free speech").

Their idiotic quest for "LULZ" and "GRAET JUSTICE!!1" only served to ruin all those hilarious, weird and disgusting things that ED was supposedly meant to celebrate. Hilariously stupid people would see the ED page about themselves, get offended, close up shop and leave their Deviantart/Youtube/Facebook forever, where's the fun in that?

In 2011, the site collapsed from a lack of money (because nobody wanted to fund it). Now pages from ED redirect to a SFW Tumblr based blog. It sucks, but at least it isn't pure cancer like ED.
Encyclopedia Dramatica dead? And nothing of value was lost...

A site that used to be funny as hell, you thought this site was awesome.
It used to be awesome in its earlier days
it is now run by a bunch of faggots who are EXACTLY what the articles are bashing
After you realize who USED to control the site
and who CURRENTLY controls the site, u realize its just the anonymous posters who edit shit, which is a lot of people,.

so being ED is not COOL

seriously, they're supporters of longcat and mudkipz and other loser shit now,

it used to be cool.
newfags think theyre shit on ED they talk about "the cancer thats killing /b/" and say shit just cuz ED says it, like fucking dogs

and "the cancer that is killing /b/ shit"
/b/ has been fucking dead for years

What about the fucking cancer that killed ED?

soooo....fuck all the current leaders of ED they're the fucking cancer.

remember, its not ED thats funny, i know u were thinking at first the bitchez on ED wrote the articles...dont deny it its not the people on ED that are "funny"...

BUT THE MILLIONS OF FUCKING PEOPLE WHO GO ON THE INTERNET EVERY FUCKING DAY, ALL THAT SHIT ON ED COULD BE WRITTEN BY FUCKING ANYBODY, AND EDITED AS THEY PLEASE

ED IS DEAD
steve: yo dude those Encyclopedia dramatica guys r fucking wicked

Me: no dumbshit its the random people all over the net, ED used to be fucking cool, now they suck dick, just look at the fucking admins and shit, fatass girlvinyl and the rest of the gang, pompous asses that think they're cool, arrogant as shit too, laugh when people talk bad about em, they'd probably point and laugh at this and block it out but the REAL Epimps would probably draw penises all over it and say "FRANKS N BEANS"

its a shame losers are taking control of everything, rock/glamrock=cool
alternative=gay
rap 50 n snoopdogg=cool
whatever that shit on the radio is=gay
hip hop usher/outkast=cool
that shit on the radio with the voice alter shit=gay
metal megadeth iron maiden=cool
nu metal=gay
50-to-69 cars=cool

Encyclopedia Dramatica (ED) is a wiki formed by LJDrama people who were writing Wikipedia articles about LiveJournal incidents, but found that such content was deleted. They started their own wiki to document online drama; hence the name.

ED is loved or hated. Those who "get" it treasure it like old issues of MAD Magazine. Those who don't get it, such as fans of funny-wiki Uncyclopedia, disparage it at length.

Articles on ED fall into several general types. (View with caution: NOT SAFE FOR WORK.)

(1) Internet people: ED documents many Internet users and their online activities. Targets include users of LiveJournal, MySpace, DeviantART, and Wikipedia, as well as sexual predators, and actual racists. (Mediacrat, Tay Zonday, Chris Forcand)

(2) Public train wrecks: Like a tabloid, ED documents and mocks offline people, groups and events that are deemed worthy of ridicule. (My Chemical Romance, Lindsay Lohan, Carlos Sousa Jr.)

(3) Internet terms: ED documents Internet sites, culture, lingo and memes, often in a fairly factual manner. Included are many 4chan memes. (So i herd u liek mudkip, Profit, YTMND)

(4) Hate articles: ED takes on and caricatures a racist, sexist, homophobic, sanctimonious, and frequently outright insane perspective. (JEWS DID WTC, Rape, Furry)

(5) Shock images: ED houses many noted shock images. (Goatse, Offended, 1guy1jar <-- Careful, you can't un-see them.)
A: "I saw the most horrible thing ever at Encyclopedia Dramatica. I'm scarred and offended."

B: "That'll happen."

C: "I saw the funniest thing ever there! I laughed 'til I cried."

B: "That'll happen too."

The place where people can hang out and pretend to be nazis and shit when all they really are is sad angry people who are writing about themselves and trying to apply it to other people. These are people who ruin the internet for everyone else and are overall annoying.
The entire site is a collection of teen angst and pointless articles. About as useful as Perez Hiltons website.
Ryan: Hey, did you read that article on YOU on Encyclopedia Dramatica?
Tyler: I did. Its pretty stupid that someone took the time to write all that out.
Ryan: Yeah. It sounded like he was trying to insult as many people as possible in a short amount of time.

Tyler: Yeah. Don't let that shit get to you man.

Is the most UNFUNNY website there is,they are also known for coming up with the STUPIDEST word in the english language LULZ.They disguise themselves in the form of wiki
and write articles even less funny then drawn together,They typically like to make fun of such things as VA Tech,The Holocaust,and of course the most deserving of all 9/11.
John:Hey Jack have you seen Encyclopedia Dramatica's page on
9/11?
Jack:Oh yeah It was hilarious I mean whats more funny than talking about extremists hijacking planes then crashing them into buildings and killing 3000 people,oh and even more funny a group of people trying to stop a plane from crashing into the white house who prevail but still end up crashing in a field! Oh and what really had me cracking up was them talking about people crying because all they have left of their loved on is a charred arm!God I almost died laughing!
John:OH ME TOO!

Quite possibly the dumbest website ever. The editors over there think they're cool because they hate everything, when really, they're just pissed cause they got kicked off of /b/. Is never taken seriously, and is mocked by the people who read it. Unfortunately, the writers take it VERY seriously, and it's SERIOUS BUSINESS if you dare insult them.
Encyclopedia Dramatica is for the very people they claim to hate: thirteen year old boys.

How do you get kicked off of /b/? Seriously?
