I've found it interesting that other sites (Fark, BoingBoing, etc.)
with large and loyal readership have now started verbing their own
names as a term for the same phenomenon as the original meaning of
/.'ed (which is the only sense in which I use it).

Perhaps some of the semantic shift is just due to the fact that more
and more servers seem to be able to stand up to that kind of traffic,
making the Slashdot-effect less automatic.
