FactPile.com Banned from Digg!

Banned from Digg

Got an email from a user who tried to submit a story to Digg (Nine Words Women Use and What They Really Mean), but instead got this:

URL blocked
This URL has been widely reported by users as being regularly used to spam Digg’s submission process and cannot be submitted at this time.

Am I guilty?


Guilty of submitting stories I think the Digg crowd would like for example, a story about a Microsoft Employee selling Halo 3 secrets, Master Chief vs Predator, and even a post PRAISING digg on what seems to be a victory in thwarting sites where you can buy digg votes ( Has Digg Beaten the Gamers?).

If you want to ban the username that submitted the stories, by all means, I can see that. But to outright not allow anything from this site to be part of Digg’s mission statement of “Digg is democratizing digital media. As a user, you participate in determining all site content by discovering, selecting, sharing, and discussing the news, videos, and podcasts that appeal to you.”

So be it, this is the last time I’ll mention that site here.

UPDATE (6/13/2008): Digg has unbanned the site.
