The term "Borked" or "Borking" originated with conservative talk show hosts (primarily Rush Limbaugh) to describe someone who is denied something earned simply because they either aren't politically correct enough or aren't trusted - usually without cause. The usage is derived from Supreme Court nominee Robert Bork who though eminently qualified was deemed too "conservative" to serve as a Supreme Court judge.
Harriet Meyers was "borked" by distrustful conservatives. NARAL "borks" any candidate that isn't "pro-choice". Radio stations around the country are "borking" the Dixie Chicks.

In computer software borked is usually synonomous with fucked up beyond all recognision, but usually has been delibratly done by someone who is incompatant.

This use of borked is rooted in the traditional defination, to obstruct by defimation &co. in this sense the obstruction is the fucked up, not working ness, and the defimation is that it is beyond all recognision.
Android is borked, Google didn't even use a posix, standard c compliant c library and I've seen more Java in starbucks than Davlik, no wonder there are no fucking apps for the thing, who'd waste years porting to that piece of fubar shit. Time to rm -rf / and install GNU/Linux.
