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.

Over at Fark.com someone posted a link to a game called Line Rider (you can play it here). Then someone posted the movie below. Someone has too much time on their hands!
This is kind of cool - pool shots in slow motion with thermal imaging. (Seen on fark.com)
Over at fark.com, there’s a thread on viral videos. Someone posted this classic which the original YouTube poster described as "The Crazy Indian Video with SUBTITLES THAT SAY WHAT I THINK THE VIDEO SOUNDS LIKE IN ENGLISH!!!" and is probably the most hyperkinetic thing I have ever seen in my life…
They are captioning this over at Fark.com. I did this (obvious) caption before reading the thread.

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