Digg Ban Users Who Criticize Digg


Digg Ban Users Who Criticize DiggI hate to go on about digg, i have been doing it a lot lately, but their methods and ways of doing things has become obviously immoral and corrupt. A friend of mine read my article about digg banning IP addresses and thought he should post it on digg. People should know about changes to the digg algorithm, right? of course they should. But i guess Kevin Rose got wind of this criticizm and decided he would ban my friends digg account, and the account of his room-mate who commented on the post, simply for criticizing the changes digg is making.

If you go and look at the Story (digg it while you are there) you will see it's submitted by a user called "GoogTube". Now, If you click on his profile you will see it comes up with the error "Invalid User Provided". This occurred just 20 minutes after he submitted the story criticizing digg. Coincidence? I think not.

It's bad enough that digg have created an algorithm that bans users for participating in the digg "community", We can assume it was a mistake and it's something they are working to fix. But when they start banning people simply for criticizing changes that have been made it starts to leave a really bad taste in my mouth. Funny how they don't ban the hundreds of people who post sycophantic articles about how great digg is and how much they love Kevin Rose.

At least they could find a reason! I can't even figure out why my IP was banned, but I'm on a corporate LAN with 500-1000 people. Looks like I'm going to be taking Digg off the list of sites I visit regularly.
