The phrase that marked the turning point for Urban Dictionary. It started as a primarily user run, democratically regulated site which was synonymous with subversion, self-parody and cultural critique. Too popular for it’s own good, UD’s owners’ no doubt became overwhelmed with its potential for self-promotion and capital generation. Now, after every definition readers are reminded that someone is making money off their "user generated" dialogue. Even “Teabaggin
” can be turned into a commodity - a side of subcultural slang now available with your morning coffee.
Former Devoted User: Yeah, I used to think UD was the shiat. Whatever…these days you can get this def on a mug.
