Ever since users found out that Digg is censoring content regarding the HD DVD encryption key from its homepage, and blocking users who posted the content, there seemes to be a revolt at the popular news site (Could it be because the HD DVD Promotion Group is a sponsor of Revision3?). The homepage, second page and third page are all filled with stories that mention that key. Guess this is what happens when social news sites go wild.
UPDATE: Digg user submissions mysteriously stop working, hmmmmmm, intentional? Also, stories involving the hex key seem to have manipulated digg counts.
Do you think Digg has the right to bill itself to be a social news site, after this very public riot? To quote Chad: “Diggnation will be interesting to watch this week”
