Me -Phil left the site in my charge. I have a recorded phone conversation to prove it.
kohai -If you're the owner, then do something useful like ip block him and get us away from juggle and on a dofferent host!
Me -haha you apparently don't know my history
Kohai - Maybe not, but that doesn't matter! You shoukd still listen to your community and quit being a tyrrant!
Me - i was being completely sarcastic
Kohai - then u misrepresented yourself by impersonating the owner—a violation of the tos

On April 14, 2011, Encyclopædia Dramatica was replaced by Oh Internet, a "sanitized"[1] version of ED.[1] Sherrod DeGrippo'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." While Oh Internet has generated interest from social networks, many visitors to Encyclopædia Dramatica were displeased by the change and attacked the website's official Facebook fan page[21] with "hate messages and pornography".[1] Speculation arose that the clean was done to make "Oh Internet" more attractive for potential acquisition, as competing website Know Your Meme had been acquired by the Cheezeburger Network.[1] The speculation was rebuffed by DeGrippo, indicating that the move had been planned for months before the KYM purchase.[22] DeGrippo further stated "I am not looking to sell the site. I am looking to have something that I, personally enjoy working on and using. Every project I'm involved in is for my own enjoyment and because I just want to do it. That's my motivation."[1]

I know right? I was just looking for the page on school shootings earlier today.
It's a shame.
