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?
