Digg buries Webreakdigg

July 26, 2006

At the time of posting, Webreakdigg’s first virgin story on digg has been buried in the “You got banned” queue. Yes. The “Netscape bans “Digg”” story is missing somehow from Digg’s Tech Industry Upcoming Queue. So if you want to Digg it go directly to the story because it does not come out even using search.

Isn’t this against the motto of Digg? Why are they moderating stories? It’s an answer that we do not have. Was the story really that bad? Did our user nick violated the TOS or is it just as Netscape bans “Digg” , Digg bans “Webreakdigg”.

Worth a read here : http://paulgraham.infogami.com/blog/ about how another Digg user’s story got buried because of his link to reddit.

UPDATES:
As of now… whatever now is … The post has 97 diggs but is nowhere to be found in Digg’s queue… Help me out here, what am I missing?

This story is officially buried for no apparent reason. So Digg is afterall broke.

The irony of it all is the Netscape bans “Digg” story is still in their RSS feeds.
