The Mafia Inside Digg.com


I have spent many hours sitting on my chair infront of monitor designing my blog and I have spent much hours on each of my articles for ubuntu and they are the result months of testing and experience , and I am enjoying it but ...

but there is something which makes me upset , whenever I submit my articles to Digg.com they get a few diggs but in less than one hour they get deleted .
I dont know who does it (I believe a Mafia inside digg is deleting my posts) the interesting part is , just after a day or sometimes a few hours ,somebody re-writes my article (most of the times they just copy/paste it) and in a few hours they make it to the front page of digg !

I believe digg has come to an era which is collapsing like every regime in the world which keeps things secret from peopel !
leaders of digg.com kept on making digg more complex every day and made hiden rules for user ranking without letting people know about their algorithm until this resulted a Mafia inside the digg.com , which is misusing its power to make money on others .(yep digg is pro open source but it is not open source itself !)


the digg.com's website design has also become so heavy and full of complex java scripts ...I personally prefer visitng reddit.com which is neat , slight and simple and more intresting than digg.com

It was nice which I saw my articles been translated in other languages but it was sad that for the source they had linked to the Mr.Thief's blog !
I emailed the Mr.Thief and asked him to link to my article as the source, and he replied "do whatever you want" well he is right ! I can do nothing, he has so much influence inside digg and he kicks my ass in the digg !

I bet they are making hundreds out of my articles , but take a look at my earning on google adsense, (2 clicks in a week and less 60 cents !)

I have written several great articles for ubuntu waiting to be published , but I am too disappointed to publish them , the Mafia inside digg will delete my post and will copy/paste my article in their own related sites and digg it !

Good job Mafia in Digg.com , good job with disappointing me !

I used to be a fan of digg.com but I think I am gonna boycott it until they become open source and tell people about their ranking algorithm and their hidden rules and crack down on mafia groups !

there are several grouping inside digg which makes digg less attractive than before, those gorups don't vote for what is useful or interesting, they vote for what is to their benefit !
I feel digg is more like a propaganda playground rather than a real source of information !

may be it is not Digg.com's fault and digg is functioning just like real societies , may be it is just human nature which sucks , in the past it was prophet's duty to guide societies but in this era , who would guide on-line societies to not steal and to not care just about yourself ?

Digg reminds me of ancient history , where empires and governments began really good then by time they misused power and forgot their ideology and at the end they collapsed !

+ These people agree with me :
