I've been reading the Digg.com web site for a long time. It's a web site that allows readers to submit news stories. The news stories get voted up or down. The most popular stories end up the front page. Since the news stories are user submitted, it tends to have a fairly chaotic and oddball selection of stories. But despite that, I could always find something interesting to read on the site.
The problem is that lately, the site had devolved into nothing but a bunch of foul mouthed, ignorant morons who seems to like nothing more than to vote up preposterous news stories full of obscenities in the titles. These were all stories that were clearly biased and heavily so. News reporting is supposed to be impartial. Just give me the facts. Keep your personal opinion out of it. I got so annoyed with these foul mouthed, childish posts, that I stopped reading the site.
Earlier this week, the developers who run Digg, reorganized how it ranks news stories. One fantastic benefit if this change is that the endless venom is gone! Yes, it still has it's fair share of oddball stories, but those are fine. I enjoy reading those. I don't enjoy reading articles full of obscenities and totally unfounded accusations.
Thank you Digg for restoring sanity to the site!
