Digg is for Putz’s. They need a web playground and they have theirs. Great.
I want editor’s, not The National Enquirer. But, just like the National Enquirer is the biggest selling weekly, so too is Digg and copycat Netscape for bloggers chasing the supermarket dream with top ten lists.
So Read Write Web is reporting on the gaming here . Of course Digg is reporting it and every underwear clad editor in the country that uses Digg will flame that story to the top. Lot’s of great time wasted – even by me now :) I guess.
It got him traffic, lot’s of retarded comments (137) and likely no stickiness. It’s like the running of the bulls. All that’s left to be picked up is a pile of steaming crap. Chartreuse was already influential. Now a bunch of Yutz’s are exposed to his site that don’t deserve to be their in the first place.
Great entrepreneurial idea and execution seems great but it is riddled with human social flaws.
I guess the point is that Gaming Digg is IN. It will stay IN and they will be pounded with this which further flaws an already flawed rating system. Not that editor’s are perfect by any stretch of the imagination.
I like my blogroll. Sticking with it for my news and info. Do the same. Everything worthwhile takes time.
