The colorful, SFW twin of Encyclopedia Dramatica.
WhatPort80 was the toned-down, colorful twin of Encyclopedia Dramatica. Some people thought that it was a site for meme-related merchandise or a candy store because of its colorful, flashy layout.
It was created so one could look up certain internet things in a public place without being kicked out of the room, such as a library or on a college computer, without being forced to resort to freaking KYM.
Oh, and because ED needed more ad revenue.
It and Encyclopedia Dramatica have been merged to form this very site.
- Its purpose was to be a toned-down version of ED, for safe reading in say, college libraries.
