1) A group of more-or-less anonymous people who are pretty much the only line of defense for this site to prevent it from being totally abused. They are pretty much the only thing between you and about 50 million explicit, pornographic, abusive, misogynistic, racist, or just plain stupid entries.
Editors have specific guidelines they must follow. However, these are often vague (especially if it's hard to tell, for example, if a term is just explaining a racial slur, or if it is in fact racist).
If your definition doesn't get published, it could be for one of two reasons:
A) It wasn't that good or
B) Someone just didn't like it for some reason.

In that case, try again...
However, bitching about them probably won't help.
1)Person: "OMG! Those evil facist urbandictionary editors rejected my entry! They suck!!!!"
Other person: "Get a life."

People who work at Urban Dictionary and reject definitions that people have made carefully and accept definitions stupid enough to be in a "Fail" picture.
Teen 1- "My urban dictionary definition was not accepted. I double checked and edited it!"

Teen 2- "It was probably one of those stupid Urban Dictionary Editors."

Deniers of freedom of speech.

The people who decide which definitions get approved on this website. Few of them actually follow the publishing guidelines.
Bad Urban Dictionary Editor: I don't like this definition. *reject* I don't agree with this definition. *reject*

Good Urban Dictionary Editor: This definition might be a little offensive, but it still follows the publishing guidelines. *accept*

I doubt this definition will get through the Urban Dictionary Editors.

A group of people with the final power to make urbandictionary.com the website that its intended to be. But some of these assholes are on a power trip and for some reasons unknown to man , are inclined to deny perfectly legitimate definitions for words , that are in some cases , not defined.

Faggots who barely publish any of my definitions, even when they are easy to understand and make a lot of sense.
