Digg.com being murdered by Users

Digg.com has been flooded by astonishing number of stories related to HD-DVD encryption key. People are digging about anything with a HD-DVD encryption key, just to keep the topics on the homepage of digg.

Although digg admins are trying their best to make things better. But even after deleting lot of stories, comments and even banning users, things are not yet under control.

Many users are irritated as this is not letting the genuine stories to become popular.

Visit digg.com now to see whats happening there.

If you are late and somehow digg managed to correct the things, then check out the screenshot here.

There is a digg submit which says “DIGG IF YOU THINK DIGG DIED TONIGHT” linking to some random site, and it had already 2711 diggs while writing this post. (It was 2066 when i started writing.)

 Updates: Digg.com is back to normal. Read the blog post of digg.com’s founder blog about his views on all that happened. Thankfully, people are digging back legitimate links now.
