Founded in 2004, Encyclopedia Dramatica (ED) was a free-form Wiki dedicated to collecting all manner of internet subculture, including illustrations, descriptions and histories, especially as related to trolling, troll activities, and internet drama.
(( Admin note: This article originated around 2013/2014 (way before this site's launch), back then it was typical for people to call Lainey by her real name, Taylor.
While sites like Know Your Meme have since popped up and given web users a source for internet meme history and general information, Encyclopedia Dramatica’s brash, offensive and not entirely accurate style of meme-cataloging is no more forever, says primary contributor Sherrod De Grippo.
ED was not necessarily an unbiased or even readable source of information, but it also distilled the culture surrounding memes and internet humor in all its unapologetic, hateful, dramatic, anti-everything glory.
That isn't Wikipedia, but the Encyclopedia Dramatica.
It's that infamous site that's been made by a**holes who got kicked out of editing at Wikipedia so they made their own Wiki where standards of good taste, common decency, and the avoidance of NSFW pictures do not exist.
