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...
