Digg Is Completely Owned By Its Users

To make a long story short a Hex key that allows you to decrypt HD-DVD movies was leaked out. Now the key is being spread everywhere on the net. It was posted on Digg and was removed after the Movie studios contacted them. Well this didn't go over well with the Digg base so they continued to submit them. Now the entire front page of Digg.com is nothing but bull**** submissions with the numbers in it in someway. It's kind of humorous. I took a screengrab of it.

It's a 1MB image so beware.

Re: Digg Is Completely Owned By Its Users

Yea. It won't stop unless they can come up with some kind of algorithm to check for instances of that key... and even then they can't stop someone from making a normal submission only to have the submission linked to that key.

Holy crap. The founder of digg just posted this: Digg the Blog Blog Archive Digg This: 09-f9-11-02-9d-74-e3-5b-d8-41-56-c5-63-56-88-c0

Didn't see that coming.

Re: Digg Is Completely Owned By Its Users

he has a way out if anything goes wrong. he has to have a way. he would never let his site be brought down just like that. that would be like Brent waging war with Ford without a backup plan to maintain this site if he lost. but at least he's talking a big game. at least he's allowing his members to have some form of hope that he's not selling out. sorry to sound synical, but this is business. and in business, you always look out for #1. and that, in this case, would be him.

Well, he was guaranteed to loose the site if he just shut it down to prevent the code from getting on there. Really, that's the only way he could have prevented it...since people were posting 'em on there quicker than they could get rid of 'em. At this way, he doesn't go down without a fight.

Kevin Rose is the creator of Digg? Isn't he the guy that used to be on (or still might be on, i don't watch any more) the ScreenSavers on what used to be TechTv, now G4?

Yes.

That wired article is incredibly biased with it's own motives. Wired hates Digg and Kevin Rose.
