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 trolls, 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.

Parody of Wikipedia. Some pages are funny, whilst others are OMGWTF/CRY/CRY/CRY

Wiki website that rips on anything you love, denies what you have learned, bashes every band on the planet, and is racist to all. They usually give false information about everything, with the exception of the "Sick fucks." They often like to follow the path of 4Chan, using all of their vocabulary and memes.

However, it should be noted that it is just for "lulz", and should not be taking too seriously. If you get offended easily, don't go there.
Encyclopedia Dramatica is a site for bitching about the world.

Pretty much all of what has been posted here. I won't say more about those aspects.

It's ironic that sometimes they cause people to embrace the very things that are derided and hated upon in the article. For instance, I got into ICP purely because of the "F**king magnets" article I visited. And it's also how I discovered the word "furry".

The course of action to take? Nothing. Take the neutral jing; if they make you mad, they win. Also, given the sheer amount of retardation in this excuse of a website, I predict it will collapse under its own weight like a black hole, what with every "Good New Article" that they get.
From the Encyclopedia Dramatica article on furries:

Furries are the scum of the Earth, and the surest candidates for dying alone. The furry fandom will accept ANYONE, and hence attracts the worst and most pathetic people in the world. Furries are so ugly that they make Brian Peppers look attractive, so stupid that they make autists look smart, and pathetic beyond compare. FAIL doesn't even begin to encompass how bad furries have done in life. Dying alone is the best they can do, preferably in the style of Mr Hands.

A group of former /b/tards that were banned from 4chan for posting child porn. These former /b/tards (now just "tards") went and vandalized 4chan's Wikipedia article, and were promptly banned from there, too. Out of bitterness, these people began Encyclopedia Dramatica as a way to get back at the Internet and fill the gigantic void where their e-cocks used to be. Articles on Encyclopedia Dramatica usually consist of websites or people which are all branded as "unfunny" and/or "gay" because Encyclopedia Dramatica is the Absolute Internet Judge Of All That Is Funny And/Or Gay.
The pedophile was banned from a website, so he wrote an article about the website on Encyclopedia Dramatica.

A parody sight that frequently contradicts itself in what it considers to be cool, uncool, stupid, and "lulz", which is a word that they consider to be funny for some reason.

Basically, a bunch of nerds who hide their pale, neck-beared faces faces behind their computers so that they can try and upset people without getting their shit rocked (beat up). I'm not saying this because they offended me. I could really care less what they think of Jesus Christ.

They mix in fact with myth, and sometimes straight up lies. Sodomy is a common sight, as that seems to be how they pass their time in real life.

As for their humor. If you like Goatse, and enjoy being made fun of, this is the place for you.

You can get a good laugh out of it every now and then. Some of it is really funny. But also there is a community that wants to spread their vile hate, grudges, or maybe just butthurt, and then hide behind satire. Make no mistake. These people will judge anything and everything.

There is a place when humor dies. That is when only hatred is left in it's place. Encyclopedia Dramatica.
Anyone who doesn't like EncyclopediaDramatica is an idiot, a faggot, or a conservative prick.

The most idiotic, racist, and sexist website on the internet. They always say extremely racist shit and block users from that website for no reason. I was part of it. When I was about to edit an article, they put that stupid B& shit for no reason. They think they do everything for the lulz, when they aren't funny at all. They do it for the Dutch lulz a.k.a dicks
