Spoof about Digg: Money and Bannings, The Future of Digg
When my wife brought this to my attention, she was worried. She noticed that some of our friends were on the list of upcoming bannings and thought we should warn them.
The sad part is not that she did not recognize it as a spoof. The sad part is that it COULD HAVE BEEN TRUE. With the eratic behavior that Digg and its upper management have been displaying of late, there is no telling what they might try to pull next. Zaibatsu – gone. FameMoney – gone. DiggBoss – gone. Countless others – gone, gone, gone.
It isn’t hard to see what Digg is doing. Their behavior is indicative of a pre-sale cleanup. It’s similar to what a car salesperson does when they know they have someone interested in a particular used vehicle. They will clean it up, warm it up, shine it up — anything they can do to hide its flaws. It doesn’t matter if the flaws are fundamental within the vehicle itself — all that matters is doing what it takes to make it look perfect before the buyer arrives.
BUT, that’s all another story. Check this one out from a new blog that we can assume was created specifically to put this post out, but you never know. Maybe more will be posted to it.
