Urban Dictionary started out as a proposed reference for slang, regional vernacular and colloquialism.

It quickly digressed and devolved into a banal collection of adolescent portmanteau and flippant one liners mostly focused on explicit sexual description and racism. Somewhat analogous to 4-chan and 8-chan but limited to non-existent words which are mostly stream of consciousness portmanteau conjured by the imaginations of adolescents or individuals with a juvenile mindset.

Most of the entries do not constitute slang or regional forms of expression. They are simply words made up by adolescent minded individuals whose obvious intent is being offensive, snarky, cheeky or cute.

By all appearances, most Urban Dictionary contributors and peer reviewers know nothing of linguistics nor regional slang and colloquialism.

I delivered the Washington Post and The Washington Star in the early 1970s; during the Watergate Scandal era. There were more Post readers than Star readers in those days. Both were good newspapers, for the most part. The Star no longer exists. The Post has deteriorated drastically. It's not worth the cost of subscription, they have nothing to offer. Reporting at the Post has lost nearly all objectivity. Now it's just a rag full of liberal opinion, sensationalism, yellow journalism and trite drivel masquerading under the guise of news journalism (some might argue that was the case 40 to 50 years ago too). It's the epitome of yellow journalism. Bezos turned it into his own skewed political platform, with a focus on click bait, advertising and internet trackers. They have no real interest or focus in news journalism and objective reporting, just yellow journalism, sensationalism, and click bait. Lately, they won't even allow visiting their website in browser private mode. A dung heap tabloid.
