One thought on “Digg Ads: Less than 2 Weeks Old and Breaking their Own TOU

  1. I like the idea behind these ads and I guess with digg’s history they’re just fine tuning it at the moment. Will they stop those useless flash banner ads anytime in the future in favor of these? Everyone just adblocks them. I removed adblock to test these and I was getting pretty decent targeted ads.
