| Good News, Everyone!|
OhInternet.com is no more. No news at 11 because nobody cares.
OhInternet (also known as OhI, OhShitternet, Know Your Meme 2: Electric Boogaloo, or old ED's purported killer) was the fetid afterbirth spilling from the diseased uterus of Encyclopedia Dramatica’s heartbreaking temporary downfall of April 2011. Created by morbidly obese traitor-hipster Sherrod Ellen DeGrippo and her sysop sheep, OhI was basically a carbon copy of Know Your Meme, except instead of cataloging memes with a pseudo-scientific flair, it depressingly and relentlessly tested the reader's tolerance for tepid, pretentious, and smarmy articles about HILARIOUS INTERNET CULTURE. It was among the internet's most naked and obvious attempts to gain Jew gold at the expense of content, though this was vehemently denied by the portly and badly-aging liar who orchestrated this filthy sellout treachery. Going from an awesome wiki about drama to an almost aggressively bland catalog of memes and milquetoast "columns", OhI was universally panned by the internet during its brief existence.
Before this abortion, there was a mighty wiki known as Encyclopedia Dramatica, Sherrod’s offspring, which originally archived LiveJournal Drama. However, as ED began to cover other topics it attracted different users whom Sherrod despised and who didn’t think her as mighty as she perceived herself. From then on, she began to hate her own offspring more and more as each day passed by. For the longest time, she chose to keep it as it was her only cash cow in life and she was too lazy to work. ED became plastered with ads, and EDF sold useless internet add-ons for more than ten dollars, yet Sherrod was never satisfied.
In 2010, a blog dedicated to doxing ED sysops popped up and paranoia ensued across ED IRC. Shortly after that, DMCAs were being sent at an alarming rate. Sherrod, being a giant pussy, refused to restore articles despite counter DMCAs being filed, as she wanted to stay on the “safe” and “legal” side. The two people who basically did all the logical thinking for her, OldDirtyBtard and weev, were gone from the internet as well. Seeing the site that ED looked down upon get money, she decided to give in to pressure and do things the easy way: sell out.
Interestingly enough, Oh Internet was actually supposed to replace ED back in late January 2011. This was prevented when an infamous tweet popped up in ED’s official Twitter account saying “RIP”. This three-letter tweet broke the hearts of many internet nerds and Gawker wrote an article about it including a link to the blog that contained sysop dox. Due to many complaints, Sherrod allowed ED to live another two months.
Statements from the sellouts
It all started with ED going down and Sherrod posting tweets about ED “going under maintenance and coming soon shortly”. Then the OhI blog was born. Surprisingly, it had an okay start. However, when it was revealed that ED was NOT being fixed and was getting replaced with the new OhI wiki, things began to heat up.
As the internet mourned the loss, Sherrod tried to ease the pain. However, her main mistake was not talking to ED’s fanbase. Instead, she did interviews and alienated the users that did the majority of work on ED.

Unfortunately for Sherrod, her answers were far from satisfactory, which led the users to turn against her. Droning about how I Can Has Cheezburger? bought Know Your Meme and had $30 million only made her appear even greedier for money for money’s sake.
Like all fat girls on the internet, WhaleVinyl still has some misguided white knights. The loyalists are former ED sysops and users who weren’t funny enough to write articles on ED. The OhI sysops have gained a sense of elitism as they believe that they singlehandedly created ED and they have a say on what happens to it.

As well as becoming the very thing it sought to mock.
Save yourself from browsing Oh Internet; this will summarize it just fine. To start off, the layout entirely resembled the page of a parked domain. What made one realize that it was an actual website was that the page used to be plastered with boring memes from two years ago that appeal to twelve year olds. The templates users utilized when making an article were worse than those of freewebs, and each article started off with a one line sentence and a giant image. Despite Sherrod stating that Oh Internet was meant to catalog anything internet related, the only articles that users were allowed to write about were meme-centric.
In essence, OhI was basically a watered-down version of WhatPort80, another censored version of ED which the sysops spent so much time building. However, OhI had a boring layout, different format, less article content and bigger text. The bulletin board, which was equivalent to ED's Thizzlehat Junction Center, used to be the center of complaints made by ED fanatics and the rare thumbs up.
Frankly, nobody gave a shit about this site, and the site is DEAD. There were typically fewer than 5 article edits per day, and the same 3 users seemed to be making 99% of the edits.
Turning into the very thing it made fun of, OhI became the most hated thing on the internet. The very fanbase that OhI sysops blamed the downfall for teamed up into a great force which resurrected Encyclopedia Dramatica through a vast labor of love. They transformed the ED kingdom and destroyed the old government of Sherrodocracy. To fuel their hatred of the fat whale, they had to retrieve thumbnails of images through Google cache when Sherrod had a full archive of the images yet refused to give them out.
Others took to vandalizing the Oh Internet wiki, the only funny part of the site, sadly. Thanks to the "Daily Top Ten Contributors", vandals made it their goal to reach the list as they gain points by ruining articles (somehow) and boast their fine skills. Below were the finest contributors of Oh Internet.
But not everyone preferred ED over Oh Internet - just ask Luka Magnotta, author of the Web's premierest snuff film, who allegedly maintained a profile on the site, according to the National Post, who don't know how to read an edit history, or tell the difference between article and userspace, even on Wikipedia.

"Oh Internet is not Know Your Meme!!!"
Here is what happened when somebody pointed out the similarities between Oh Internet and Know Your Meme, even though Sherrod herself bought and typosquatted the domain http://knowyourmemeS.com and pointed it at WhatPort80
and later at Oh Internet hoping to get some of that sweet typo traffic. But they were totally different.
10/29/2012 NEVAR FORGET
On October 29th, 2012, one day before the second anniversary of OldDirtyBtard's death, Oh Internet went down. Credit was claimed by the Gay Nigger Association of America. The internet has a little less cancer, at least for the time being. , Oh Internet's official Twitter later the familiar words:
—, misquoting Mark Twain
The same Encyclopedia Dramatica was tragically replaced with the site that would go on to become the butt of every internet joke for at least the next two years.that was given just before
—, Original ED.com Twitter account, lying.
Even further, this new Twain quote was used to obfuscate the real reason for their downtime, as there were not any actual technical issues. Oh Internet was vandalized to death by the GNAA and the only way they could stop it was to shut the server down. Hope they have a backup!
Around October of 2013, almost two years after the unholy abomination that was OhI emerged from Sherrod's wallet, the Oh Internet servers started "refusing connections" to visitors. In other words, the site went offline. Oh Internet users/readers didn't seem to notice, or care. (HINT: There are none!)
Whether or not the site is closed for good, and whether or not Sherrod and the rest of the OhI staff will try a new site remains to be seen. However, for the time being, the enemies of the lulz who created OhI are defeated.
