Encyclopædia Dramatica (.se)
|Author(s)||Owners: Garrett, e, Zaiger|
|Launch date||April 2011|
Encyclopedia Dramatica (.se), previously Encyclopedia Dramatica (.ch), is an unofficial continuation of the original site, Encyclopædia Dramatica (.com). It was started days after the closing of encyclopediadramatica.com by users and administrators not keen to migrate to previous owner Sherrod DeGrippo's new venture. Encyclopediadramatica.se documents Internet memes and events with biting satire and heavy vulgarity.
 Down time
ED.ch saw a day of downtime after the site's founder, Ryan Cleary, was arrested for supposed affiliation to LulzSec, the troll hacker group. The forums were also down after being hacked by user savetheinternet in retaliation for a massive DDoS attack on the host his own site, 4chon.net; $300 in donations were needed to revive them, which was raised within 24 hours.
 Member Security
On June 27, 2011, the ED.ch forums were hacked, and the email adresses of every member were posted to pastebin and published in a blog owned by anti-Google activist Daniel Brandt entitled Encyclopedia Dramatica: There is no Joseph Evers. Brandt, who is allied with the United States intelligence community, caused the closure of the former incarnation of Encyclopedia Dramatica, located at Encyclopediadramatica.com.
 DNS Issues
In March of 2012, ED suffered a brief downtime due to renewal complications with the domain registrars in Switzerland. While the database was secured, the site was not able to be accessed till encyclopediadramatica.se was purchased. As of March 21, ED is still working with the registrars to re-obtain the .ch domain. Many pumpers using encyclopediadramatica.ch vhosts were also unconvinced to learn that they were of no use for the time being.
 Encyclopedia Dramatica and furry
The site contains almost all old ED articles documenting the furry fandom and furry-related topics, along with new articles not at the old domain. The "FurFaggotry Portal" was once maintained by Equivamp and a user by the name of Notanalt, though is now unmaintained. ED's current IRC is hosted by known furry sympathizer cho0b.
