OldDirtyBtard (Real name: Sean Casarov; b. November 17, 1961 - d. October 30, 2010), also known on the Internet as Rorschach, and most notably as former ED administrator OldDirtyBtard (not to be confused with the far less badass and equally as dead Wu-tang Clan member) was the most dramatic person to ever control the banhammer for ED. In short, he was the Dos Equis guy. Among his notable traits are his being British, having an æ tattoo, shooting off his own pinky just to watch it die, getting DUI's on consecutive nights, lieking Mudkips, accidentally inventing the word EDiot, being a macfag (as he got one for free), having a sister who appeared naked on the Queen single Bicycle Race, managing the Beastie Boys, shooting up an Armenian's car, marrying strippers, working in porn because it was less scummy than the music industry, corrupting his underage nephew into becoming an internet troll, having his beloved cat killed by Scientologists and almost killing himself over it... while being drunk, pilled up and daydreaming about Thailand the entire time.
During his stay at ED, ODB always amused ED IRC with anecdotes of promoting Q-Tip and getting eppigy to lose his oline on Christmas. He also notably got arrested for DUI's on consecutive nights (and got off scot free), shot off his pinky to see what it'd feel like, quit alcohol forever, fell off the wagon 6 months later, shot up an Armenian's car for honking too much, and managed to find ED funny despite being nearly 50 years old.
It was around this 45-year-period that ODB had a falling out with the guy who ran Warner Music Group into the ground, Lyor Cohen. He wasn't bitter though.

ODB came to ED on July 15, 2006 with an unassuming edit to the Troll article. His first major article was the Jewnited States of Americunts, thanks to an obligatory hatred for everything non-English (and English as well). He was a major contributor ever since being sysopped. Not long after getting his banhammer, ODB ran his favorite pet project, Lulz News Network on the ED Main Page. Like everything else that made the Captain happy, this was to be taken away by the Jews in charge and replaced with a new web 2.0 front page to try to attract advertisers.
Probably due to his hatred of Americans who pulled off a massive troll by surrounding his home in HelLA as well as his massive opiate and alcohol dependencies, OCD, and need to feel useful, ODB holds the record for most edits to this hole of a website. Sadly, ODB's ED decline began with the advent of MysteryBot, which basically did everything ODB did for free. ODB invented the term PakiBot for its ability to do the same job for much cheaper.
ODB did everything he could to keep ED alive and thriving in 2008, including getting a wave of 13 newbies sysopped and becoming a leaderfag in the chanology movement. On many occasions though ODB had been known to show his primacy by cutting uppity sysops down to size.

Memorial services were held for The Captain on November 14, 2010 in Los Angeles. Family and friends from all over attended. Anon, ED and various people from the music industry were also there. It was a wake that Sean himself would have approved of had he been there to see it. Although it didn't get recorded in the video of the services, this was probably the first time in history that a room full of people got Rickrolled by a bagpipe player. Srsly.
