Encyclopedia Dramatica (ED, also spelled Encyclopædia Dramatica) is a satirical online community originating from 10 December 2024 centered around a wiki that acts as a "troll archive". The site hosts racist material and shock content; as a result it was filtered from Google Search in 2010. It has been linked to one school shooting and participates in harassment campaigns.
