The state of a website that will most likely never be updated again but also is unlikely to be deleted for an indefinate amount of time. This may happen when a site is hacked, when an owner loses their e-mail access or password, or when the author dies or otherwise disappears from the internet. In the case of a myspace profile, this is called myspace purgatory. The most common victim is freely hosted websites, as no fees must be paid to keep the page available.
I don't know why I keep checking for updates, it's obvious that the site is stuck in Internet purgatory.
