Digg, Dug Itself Down on HD DVD Posts, But One Post Stuck It Out

2 05 2007

Thou shalt not suck is THE first commandment of “web 2.0” semantics.  Digg had already sunk way below “Suck” years ago when it stopped being the alter-slashdot.  Now they are somewhere around “ghey” or “n00b”.

I was clicking around some DIGG links I saw with the HD DVD key posted and they we all just gone.  I didn’t really know what the crap was going on, cause Digg is way five minutes ago and I rarely visit unless there is a post that catches my eye on popurls.  I thought my connection was all messed up or something.  Turns out this post from TechPwn » Digg Shuts Down Story Submissions had the hizzy on Digg.  It was accurate until a few minutes ago (HD DVD posts are back up now).  Anyway, read that post for the whole explanation on why Digg is now officially ghey.

Story submissions were gone, and almost all the posts with the controversial set of base64 values like this one: 09 F9 11 02 9D 74 E3 5B D8 41 56 C5 63 56 88 C0, got timed out.  It seems they are back up now, but I dunno if they will ever make the front page.

However, there is one post with the HD DVD key that stayed active on Digg, even through the craptastickness of late.  In fact its probably the most hilarious post, in context, that I have ever seen on any social link site… ever!  Check it:

HD-DVD AKA Henry Denis-Dale Vance Dalton and His Lottery number

The random numbers of the Henry Denis-Dale Vance Dalton AKA. HD-DVD’s week lottery are: 09 F9 11 02 9D 74 E3 5B Last week’s random LOTTERY numbers were: D8 41 56 C5 63 56 88 C0 Congratz to all digg users who got the numbers good. The prize is Freedom!

Now that’s just friggin funny.

Hilarity of that post aside, how much of a bunch of pussnuts are the guys running Digg?  They gave in to the piss and wind from Hollywood, now that is “suck” in its truest form.
