Digg is one of the most powerful websites in the world. People wait daily for the next big Digg and will jump on new articles that make the front page (lovingly referred to as the FP by Digg fans) to get into the craze of reading and Digg-ing the latest and hottest article.
Digg presents articles in all possible categories. Computers, science, personal interest, you name it!! And regardless of what anyone tells you, it is a sensation and absolutely enormous. According to Alexa, Digg.com is ranked the 248th web site in the entire world. It is hard to fathom that number, but that places it ahead of cnbc.com, and it dwarfs competitive sites like reddit.com at 3831, and showhype at 5338.
For a site to make it under 1000 in the Alexa rankings places it in the elite company of sites like ebay, amazon, and yahoo. We realize these leaders are well ahead, but Digg clearly has power and is getting stronger. How much does it mean to an article that receives Diggs? Getting an article to the front page on Digg has been known to generate so many hits that it often brings sites down because they just can’t handle the traffic.
Now why, if you are a conservative or moderate, should you care? Because Digg has made an obvious statement, and they clearly have a liberal, if not radical, political agenda. They are as left wing as any web site can be, and have chosen to spotlite outright political lies and shine a beacon on them to blaze a trail for the liberals to blindly follow.
What do they do to politically-oriented articles from moderates and conservative? They “bury” (hide) the articles. They cause errors in their system to keep people from successfully digging them. And they give more weight to liberals that digg articles and comment on them. The biased weighting of contributors in their ranking system allows them to make sure the conservative and moderate comments get buried while the liberal articles spike to the front page almost no matter how foolish they are.
The most despicable thing that Digg does daily is attack users that are not aligned with their radical political views. If you are conservative, you can bet your bottom dollar that Digg.com will likely ban you and bury all articles from your website or blog.
It is quite common for people to place a twist on their title when they Digg an article. When you submit your Digg, you are allowed to designate the title that will be used in Digg. If you twist it to the liberal side, DIGG will ensure you get to the top of their list. One foolish headline that was way overplayed was when someone found a single picture of Bush not wearing a suit coat in the Oval Office. It got thousands of Diggs because it was entitled “Bush’s Chief Of Staff Is Full Of Crap”. If you play a similar game with a liberal article and say Obama is full of crap, don’t expect to get Diggs, expect to get banned.
We have experimented with various tactics to determine Digg’s reactions. When one liberal website came out and announced with glee that we would all see our benefits from the “spendulus” program soon, it noted in the very first paragraph that the evidence would be a whopping $65 a month in middle class paychecks. We submitted it to DIGG with the title “Obama Announces You Will Be Getting Your $13 A Week Soon”. Digg’s response? They removed the account and banned us from posting. But when the article above is twisted into “Bush’s Chief Of Staff Is Full Of Crap” they push it to their front page and it gets thousands of Diggs.
So, if you are conservative or moderate and are sick of the liberal nonsense that is dominating the web, you can show your displeasure by attacking Digg by just Digging the articles from the sites you do like. It works like a petition. It states your opinion and says you matter and it says it right in the face of the liberals that run the site. And there is nothing they can do about it, short of remove your account, like that matters! You can just create a new one. It is so easy and the folks that write your favorite articles will greatly appreciate your support. We know we do!!
If you want to be more radical, you can attack Digg in the following way. We suggest you also use HuffingtonPost.com as a deserving target because of the liberal lies and distortions they continually print on their website.
1. Create a new Digg account, one you don’t mind losing.
2. Over the next day or two, make some friends (check who dugg articles you like and add them as friends) in the Digg system and Digg articles you find interesting or even those you don’t from various sources.
3. Watch the HuffingtonPost.com for articles that have not yet received a Digg, especially recently released headlines.
4. Be the first to Digg the article and put your twist on it with your own title when you submit it to Digg.
This is especially useful for attacking a liberal website like Huffington that has an alliance with Digg that gets them thousands of DIGGs for articles that are complete fabrications or distortions. Huffington lies daily to endorse their radical stance, so Digg them and be creative with your title. It eats their traffic alive as their liberal readers get confused about what the article is really about, and the number of Diggs on each article they write gets fewer and fewer Diggs.
And if they go so far as to consider you a real threat, a conservative with brains, then they will try to block your IP Address. Get a new one. It is easy. If you ask in the comments section to this article, we will follow up and tell you how.
Do your part America. Let the liberals know they don’t own the web. They just think they do.
