An online "dictionary" for slang terms, with a light side and a dark side.

The light side is, if there is a widely used word, that's not in the English vocabulary (officially), and you want to know what it means, chances are, you may find it here.

Now, for the dark side: poor monitoring. Though you may find the word you're looking for, chances of finding it on a definition that is accurate, non-opinion-showing, and un-hateful are extremely rare.

Because of how poorly monitored the site is, Spammers take advantage of it and post words with definitions that are inaccurate, hateful, violent, offensive, and/or maybe even porn-related.

Fortunately, there is the "recommend for removal" feature and sensible people can come and have such definitions removed. However, the Spammers can post as fast as (if not faster than) those people can remove.

One definition you might find could be as bad as the example below:

(Please note that I have nothing against the television show "Barney". That is just an example.)
"A stupid f---ing TV show about lame, love-dovey f---ingness, like Barney. It is stupid and g--, like Barney. Oh, and I hate Barney."

An online dictionary that teenagers and college students make horrible slang entries for words. Their entries often are sexual, racist, anti-semetic, poorly written, and very vague. Shows one of the reasons why the world's education is steadily becoming worse.

Although Wikipedia is also editible by anyone, Wikipedia is a much better site to look for definitions. It's more of an encyclopedia, but their community is alot better than this site.
