Anyone been following Encyclopedia Dramatica? It seems they've changed formats. I'm kind of surprised to not see a thread about it here already, though it's certainly possible I just missed it. Or maybe this place is just kinda dead at the moment.

Any news, Alison? I thought they were just down temporarily and set up a new site like that one Internet meme thing for kids.

It's not a reformatted ED. Oh Internet was constructed from scratch.

Why did Ed close? Was there some lawsuit we don't know about? Seems strange it just vanished like that.

My sources tell me that the redirect is a temporary measure, and that ohinternet.com is simply a "holding domain" to be used while authorities search for Sherrod DeGrippo's stolen wig collection.

Apparently Ms. DeGrippo had an astonishingly large collection of wigs. Why she would want to steal so many is still a bit of a mystery, but we all have our little foibles and eccentricities, I suppose.

Queen Sherrod did not like ED. Neither did any rational observer with a social conscience. Good riddance.

Wait a minute, are you saying none of those stolen wigs will ever be returned to their rightful owners?

Think of all the endangered mountain gorillas out there who now have no pubic hair, and for what? It all seems so tragically pointless.

Is THAT who she blames? Ha ha ha.

Mebbe I should sell HER the swampland.

Mr. Brandt, did you finally get thru to them, and that's why ED is "gone for good"?
If so, a) good fer you and have a drink, and b) where am I gonna go to look up
crazy people from Livejournal and Deviant Art? That was practically the only legitimate
use ED had--it listed some of the worst net-trolls. In a maybe-not-deserved
shit-on-their-heads format, granted.
But at least there was something. How else can you find out that wackos like
Snapesnogger and Jessica Elwood aren't who they say they are?

But isn't this always how these things end up? I mean, you put together a perfectly good shock site, dedicated to racism, bigotry, sexism, homophobia, and advocacy of a wide variety of sexual perversions, only to have it ruined by 12-year-old btard fgz. I mean, what's the point of even trying anymore? confused.gif

I would say that josephevers.blogspot.com hastened the inevitable.

I helped with the research and the photos, and logged IRC for 8 months, but I don't have the password to the site. The owner of that blog is someone you all don't know from WR. I don't even know what country he/she lives in. He/she is that lovable all-Tor-all-the-time researcher on WR. A damn good researcher. Hats off to him/her.
