So today, Monday the August 30th, is “Abandon Digg Day
“…. a sentiment repeated throughout the comment section of Digg. As it stands at 4:30 in the morning, on the Monday of Abandon Digg Day, this is what the front page looks like
Can you believe a story with 12 votes is on the front page of Digg? I can’t either.
Notice Mr.Babyman’s plea is the most dugg story, and it has a respectable number of a couple thousand. (Anything on the front page should have at least a couple hundred votes!)
As you can see from the Kevin Rose = Hitler image above, created by a digg user, they mean business.
Brandon Davenport wrote a blurb about ‘Abandon Digg Day’ over on T3ch H3lp
, and has a screen shot of his own, with even more pitiful numbers (4 diggs on the front page!
). Mr. Davenport likes the new digg somehow, hopefully for reasons not related to brain damage. Maybe he is trolling…. being contrary for hits.
The thumbs up have returned, but this Downfall parody is still pertinent:
this new link should work:

(and in other news, I have been acclimating myself to reddit. It’s…. interesting.)

I see ads on College Humor, Hulu, and Huffington Post, and people talking about Isaiah Mustafa (the actor who plays the Old Spice Guy) on Digg, Reddit and Twitter. In case you’ve been living without a TV or internet since February, here is the link to the first Old Spice ad featuring Mr. Mustafa (that aired during the Super Bowl), and I’ve embedded the brand new commercial below. Please watch both commercials before continuing.
