Fark.com's answer to the Slashdot Effect.

Fark.com gets millions upon millions of hits daily from people looking for quirky, interesting, or funny web sites. Most of these web sites end up on servers that can't handle millions upon millions of users. Usually the linked server shuts down after too many hits. Since the hits have almost all come from Fark.com, the commentors on the link say that the site is "Farked"

The condition is most annoying when anything gets linked to from a Geocities or similar free web site, as they get always Farked in a matter of minutes, never to be seen again.
