    So I needed to look up some internet drama, and went to the best source only to find out it's been taken down. WTF?

    Those of you more in the know, what's the story? There has to be more than is on the wikipedia page.

    I keep imagining some counter-Anonymous group that might be responsible and laughing myself silly. :diacanu:

    Biased source is biased.

    Long story short, the owners of the original ED sold out and turned the place into a more user-friendly site called Oh Internet--which is pretty much a watered down version of Uncyclopedia, which is already weak sauce by itself. :shrug:
