Encyclopedia Dramatica >> Oh Internet
A few days ago I tries to access Encyclopaedia Dramatica, the of the funniest websites on the internet IMO, only to find that it was going through 'technical difficulties'. So this morning I tries it again, and found that the url linked to a new website called 'Oh Internet'. Upon Googling this, I found out that the website had literally been replaced, and Oh Internet is supposedly a more 'toned down' version of the site.
Now I would do a comparison of the ED articles to the Oh Internet 'toned down' articles. But oh wait, I can't do a comparison, because every single ED article has been deleted, erased, beret of life, destroyed and fucking obliterated. Hell, even if I try googling one of the old articles, it'll definitely show up on Google, but you click it, it takes you to the homepage of Oh Internet.
But even, these new 'articles' are complete bullshit. Currently the homepage's featured pictures are just your average internet memes that have already been done to death. Currently their featured video is a windows movie maker video about seriously unfunny Portal quotes. And the articles that they have made, NEVER attempt to be funny. AT ALL.
Infact, you know what it is?...It is Wikipedia for Dummies. That is exactly what it is. I swear I'm not kidding, go look up any article on that site and tell me it didn't come from a 'for dummies' book.
Encyclopaedia Dramatica had always been known for its freedom to talk shit about anything, show as much gratuitous content as they can, and make as many Rule 34 references as they possibly can. It was generally the Trollface of Wikipedia.
THIS, is an abomination to the internet. It has no originality, no idea what it's doing, and it has no jokes. It is, just, a factual website, with some random lolcat thrown in every now and then. If there are any hackers out there, if you are reading this...please do your thing, and shut down this piece of shit and help bring back the ED we/I know and love.
