Stranger Fruit

Has Fark.com jumped the shark?

I’ll admit to spending way too much time lurking at Fark.com. Today the site underwent a re-design and the punters aren’t happy. The new layout is ugly (particularly on a wide screen), it loads slooooow, and Firfox extensions no longer work. People on this thread are complaining and things are being made worse by an idiot moderator (“Jeff”) telling people – even paid subscribers – to essentially STFU. Pity. It was good while it lasted.

    With scienceblogs in the house, who has time to Fark around anymore?

    Fark that, scienceblogs is much better (no paid subscriptions, brighter bloggers)
