Historic Dramoutings of the 20th Century

One of the many effects the birth of Encyclopedia Dramatica has had on the interverse is its amazing ability to harness the powers of Google in order to push ED articles about the inhabitants LiveJournal, dA, Furaffinity and other internets communities to the top of the list of search results for that username. It is documented fact that when someone is senselessly attacked by another user with little to no social life, the victim will google the troll's name in hopes of finding some type of dirt on them, possibly a Megan's Law reference or photos of a brief stint in an 80s rock cover band.

Early victims of dramouting, including well known morons Killhamster, Ghostlight, Brainlesswonder and Fireuzer struggled not only to hide their shock, upset, and hurt from dramoutings, but also to name and label the phenomenon. They originally settled on EDed during a prolonged circle jerk; however, after the realization that this could be confused with getting penetrated in the ass by a large talking horse, it was decided that a new term was needed. Unfortunately, no new effort has been made to coin a phrase describing this, and most likely none will occur, since the only victims of dramouting are socially isolated losers who have a fascination with downloading nude pictures of Captain Janeway.

The term, of course, only applies to a situation when the dramouted individual is at a lack for words or cohesive arguments, and thus simply wants to mock away the issue by playing it cool.

Proper usage

  • "OMG, I was dramouted!"
  • "OMG, You dramouted me!"
  • "WTF, dramouted in the ass?!"
  • "Damn you! Dramouted again."
