it seems like such a powerful tool in the hands of the people... but how long before it becomes bought and sold? corrupted or whatever?

It seems odd to say the least... that i see a group of people so much like me. On the front page i constantly hear stories about: Ubuntu, linux..... Ron paul... Pro guns... pro marijuana.... and just plain cool random tech articles or pages around the web.

all hail digg!

the corruption has already begun with at least one site that i know of that pay's you to digg certain articles as a way of driving traffic to sites that pay this service to make more money off ads.

I rather loath the fact that no story on Linux can get on Digg without mentioning Ubuntu, Shuttleworth or Beryl. The world is a big place and there is a lot of interest development going on outside those areas and lots of valuable opinion as well, it would be nice if the fanboys didn't get to ruin what could be a good ressource.

All I can say is I'm bloody happy the Ron Paul spam died out.

People just don't want to pay taxes, it's idiotic.

I loved digg once, but then the comments on everything just became one big Flame fest so I walked away.

i totally agree with this
as much as i love ubuntu, it just bothers me how many articles i see under the digg linux section that specifically refer to ubuntu when it can be applied to any distro.

90% of the comments are simply eftarded, like 90% of the users, I should imagine.

I can remember when only intelligent, relatively well-behaved adults were on the Internet. [sigh!] :rolleyes:

The level of immature Linux fanboyism is pretty sickening there, too; anything with Linux or Ubuntu in the title gets pumped up regardless of content or redundancy, then extensively commented by persons who have obviously never read the article. Nonsense, flamewars and stupid "jokes."

Yeah, I blew off Digg long ago, too. I scan the RSS and about once a week click a title, then usually regret it.

I'm glad that the leaders who basically post all the stories are Linux users. It also advertises Linux a lot. :D

wasn't it Digg that removed the mastercode for Blueray DRM and then there was a "public" outcry because of it?

Yea, I'm pretty zelous in arguments with friends,but is it taking it to far when I don't want to use m$ in school?

Digg was once good, but no longer. I was a pretty religious digger for several years, but I stopped going there a few months ago and haven't been back since. It's turned into just a ridiculous flame fest and breeding ground for ten year olds. Every bit of intelligence that it ever had is completely gone. Beside that, their supposedly "democratic" front page is anything BUT democratic.

Once in a while, I see random articles with mostly Dugg-down comments, called a graveyard, with references to memes and common fanboy comments instead of polite ones.

Yes because all those socialist countries have such poor quality of life.
All that free education and health care is a real bummer.

I love Digg except for about 75-85% of the users

Actually it was HD-DVD but yes the Digg community got pissed but Kevin Rose apologized and it all blew over.

The same. I try not to visit too frequently, yet it is still one of my homepages. I'm "jacobmp92" on there (who would have guessed?)

How does Reddit compare, regarding the maturity level of commenters?
