Digging for Fire!

I am sure most of Any Arb's readers have used or participated in Digg at some point or another. Hey it is one of the "biggies" of the Web 2.0 era.

Well yesterday Digg decided to remove any posts containing the encryption key for HD DVD. No big deal you say...well Diggers went ape. Filling the entire front page exclusively with stories relating to this topic.

It has highlighted an issue that has been long time coming. Digg used to be about user moderated content. I understand this cannot be sustained with the amount of spam sites auto posting and paying to be dugg up, but it is a nice eutopian ideal. This proves the extent of the moderation by the Digg elite.

However check out the post by Kevin Rose himself and it seems like he is listening to users!
