Yet another site that pretends to be sometime of wiki. Imagine TheOnion but in wiki format, not as funny and the satire steroids... you will get this.
The website is meant to be satirical, edgy shocking to everyone but in a comedic way. But it overshoots it by making irrational and illogical assumptions and conclusions. If there are any rumors or insane conspiracy they will attempt to promote it as something true. Thus this would go with the most radical Alex Jones types and those from the extreme alt-right.
The itself UI is bland and tries to copy Wiki but makes Wiki's UI look amazing in comparison.
If you enjoy wasting time reading crazy satirical wiki entries then this is a place for you. Otherwise i would not exactly recommend visiting this place.
former site owner zaiger was thown out after getting caught trying to sabotage site, as well as for using malvertising to fund drug addictions.
this is a great improvement!
any claim that the site promotes hate speech is just bullshit from regressive leftists.
Very edgy parody website, completely politically incorrect with many racism, sexism and anything in-between. Nothing directly malicious but some links and sites can be shocking and some personal information are stored.

Tl;dr this website spies on users. There have been many people who used this website (and even some people who haven't) who have been doxed (the revealing of someone's personal information) and all their laundry was posted publicly either on the forums or on the sites wiki for the whole world to see. These people will ruin your life, so use this site carefully.
Another problem is shocking or gruesome content. This is an especially persistent problem on the wiki, so much to where it's gotten the website labelled as a "shock site" by Wikipedia.
The website used to be owned by a man named Brian Zaiger, who filled with website with all sorts of various porno ads and ads that give you viruses, which pocketed him more money as you clicked away 10 ads every time you clicked anywhere on the web page which even got encyclopedia dramatica under spam blacklists. He then used this money on his drink and alcohol addiction.
Safely to say, the website no longer has these virus ridden pop up ads, but that doesn't mean the site is safe to use.
It's humorous and it is an expression of free speech and is 100% satirical. Just stay away from the "offended" page, it's where all the gruesome or shocking things come up, otherwise, controversial topics and adult content are indeed frequent. It does not discriminate, it hates all people equally.
The site itself does not promote doxing or other harmful activities, as it is just an archival wiki with a comedic, cynical twist.
It's a good place to explain the sketchy antics of many types of people, sometimes even just objects, websites, or groups of people.
A fun place to research (online drama) topics if you aren't a coward. It is more creative than Leafyishere and is obviously satire, while people took Leafy seriously. Then again, Bluecatriolu and the person below take this site seriously, so there's that, but still: anybody who actually thinks about it knows this site is just satire with the main purpose of archiving information with a funny dramatic twist.
Some of the articles are not well researched, however.
Their article on Nirvana and Kurt Cobain for example.
Considering the fact that Nirvana was huge, and appealed to the Encyclopedia Dramatica outcast crowd, they should know WAY more than they do.
