Go back to ED.
I've not been there in over a month but hey - rant on...
I just read this article
, which mentions Encyclopedia Dramatica in the last sentence.
Here's my advice to you, Alison. As a sysop and checkuser on ED, you should go back and visit ED for the purpose of flushing ED's LOIC article
down the drain, and make sure it stays flushed. If you get away with this, then flush the aboriginal article
, as well as the revenge article
written to punish the Australian citizen who complained to the Australian authorities. Then resign your sysop and checkuser status at ED, flush your user page, and never go back.
You've come down on me for doxing an underage Wikipediot, but here ED is enticing EDiots to first commit one felony (DDoS with LOIC), and then commit a second felony (lying to the FBI). You are not being very protective of children by participating in ED. Even Martha Stewart knows better than to lie to the FBI (she did time for this). This is the worst possible advice ED could give the basement-dwellers who read ED.
ED's defense is that this "free speech" is protected because it's all satire. Such a defense might be reasonable if the readership is educated enough to recognize it as satire. In the case of ED, however, satire passes over into outright hate speech, simply because ED readers are uneducated, inexperienced in the real world, and irresponsible.
ED is an attractive nuisance for children and other stupid people, and has no right to exist.
