It has become "Oh internet" and from what I can tell its a page about internet culture n stuff.

Sherrod DeGrippio's reasoning was that "Shock for shock’s sake is old at this point and we're looking forward to the future and how things are evolving... when you put user experience first, the language becomes highly important and that's what we’ve done."

I think what she means is "I like money".

  • ED was the worst site on the entire internet. Hopefully now it'll be something that isn't a total piece of shit.

  • Know Your Meme completely supplants ED. At least when I go to KYM, I don't have to worry about a flood of popups, virus alerts, and assorted BS because the staff doesn't give two shits if they get hacked or put up ads from a shady site.

    You have to be kidding.

    ED was pretty well written sometimes though. Know Your Meme is pretty "blehhh"

    Regardless, the internet shall survive I thinks, no idea why the two can't coexist though

    Why do you say this? I'm not trying to disagree with you (it's no secret that ED had a lot of problems, to put things politely), I'm just curious about your reasoning.

    Dead baby real pics for humor. That's just one of the reasons I'm glad its gone forever.

  • ED was, sadly, one of the only sites that were able to drop truly adequate criticism with a "no bullshit" behavior. That is actually quite valuable. Although there are MANY examples of ED just trolling people with porn gifs, bad promotion and, well, pointing out legit points that anyone else who has a feel of decency wouldn't. ED did devour and demolish, but there are also many times they tried to do SOMETHING.

  • I never had the chance to visit ED when it was up. Was it anything like the uncylopedia? It basically is full of pages where people have come up with OTT explanations for things. Like Volcanoes are "large bulges in the earth's crust where the very ground itself opens in a melodramatic burst of annoying lava, ash, and angst. In other words, they are like mountains, but scientists like to talk about them. This is because the volcanoes are annoying little attention whores. "

    No. It was...uh...how do I put this...

    Well, it was partially a wiki about Internet culture, with articles about memes, websites, and...notorious individuals. And it was partially a shock humor site (I should add that almost every article was outright insulting its subject).
