Encyclopedia Dramatica (officially abbreviated ED) is a is a satirical website, consisting of a wiki that uses MediaWiki software. Founded on December 10, 2004, it lampoons encyclopedia topics and current events, especially those related or relevant to contemporary Internet culture. It often serves as a repository of information and a means of discussion for the internet subculture known as Anonymous. This not safe/suitable for work (NSFW) internet site celebrates a subversive "trolling culture", and documents Internet memes, culture, and events, such as mass organized pranks, trolling events, "raids", large-scale failures of Internet security, and criticism of Internet communities which are accused of self-censorship in order to garner prestige or positive coverage from traditional and established media outlets.
As of March 2017, it has changed its domain name to a new one.
Encyclopedia Dramatica is a rival site of Wikipedia posting things the not-so-politically correct way. Its culture may differ from the real-life events, and it shows mostly news that are untrue and slandering, compared to the real world. Posts on the site are explicit, racist, sexist, homophobic, religion bashing, and destructively disturbing to another one's real-life privacy, all for the intention of spreading humor.
