After the first round of bannings, I made a bet with MikeonTV. He said that, despite Digg saying that the bans were permanent, that they would get it all straightened out and give them a second chance if they sent an email saying they wouldn’t break the rules any more and would delete all scripts from their computer. My thought was that Digg does not go back on their “word” when it comes to these types of issues (even though they have gone back on their word on other issues, but that’s not for this post) and nobody would be given a second chance whether they deserved it or not.
Sadly, I was right.
Most everyone knows the history. This post is really for Digg to (hopefully) read. (more…)
