Do you submit stories to Digg hoping that one day you might have one hit the front page? We all do, but the sad truth is that most stories won't get more than a handful of diggs. Here's a cool digg counter that will make sure you'll get all the diggs you want.

A day without Digg

A day without Digg

2:00AM (EST) May 2nd , 2007 Digg was pronounced dead.

Ok, maybe dead is a bit too strong of a word, but after a long night of fighting with angered Diggers the site has finally crashed. It was only a matter of time, I'm surprised it lasted this long. Perhaps it will be up again later, but they've made a lot of people angry, and well, once you piss off the internet, it's hard to get back in its good graces.

Extra Extra! Mob takes over Digg – Riot ensues!

Extra Extra! Mob takes over Digg – Riot ensues!

Chaos, that's the only word that can describe what's going on over at Digg right now. Apparently, someone put up a story that contained the HD-DVD AACS Processing Key and not only was the story deleted, but the user was banned.

This has caused the biggest uproar that I've ever seen on a site such as Digg. It seems that many users are digging anything that contains the magic number in it, and burying everything else that comes along. This way every story for pages and pages contains the hack.

The big thing to note is that it's not a riot about the hack, it's a riot about censorship. The site was built on the idea that the users picked the stories, and as long as there's no foul play to hit the front page, they're left alone. But when Digg decides to start censoring what stories it will allow, then they are destroying everything that they stand for.

Soon such tweets will be tested under the watchful eye of Pheme, a lie detector of sorts that aims to determine in real time whether a tweet contains the truth or is a lie.

What you're seeing here are some of the best of the best that we've seen so far.
