Encyclopedia Dramatica (commonly abbreviated ED) is a popular internet wiki hub for those who wish to insult, satire, lampoon or just outright offend a majority or minority group that they do not belong to. The sight has become popular among troll
s, people who it does not directly insult, 4chan users and anyone mellow enough not to take it seriously. The website is often criticized for its racism, bigotry, extremely horrifying and unfriendly images and lack of real information. In defense those who use the sight claim to "do it for the lulz". Some of those "satired" by ED: Furries, Inflation fetishists, Jews, Blacks, Women, Nerds, Gamers, Penny Arcade, Wikipedia, People who don't like ED, Hamsters, Pedophiles et al.
