A couple of reports, from HotAir and Jason Calacanis stating that a mob of users at social networking darling Digg is working together to bury posts from conservative bloggers, SEO’s and other people they’ve decided they don’t like.
This following the recent decision by Digg to un-ban a long list of sites previously banned for alleged spamming, included most (if not all) of the blogging SEO community.
As Jason Calacanis rightfully points out, the bury process at Digg is not transparent in that user names are not attached to bury requests, which itself leads to the accusation that mob rule is currently in vogue at the site. Certainly the screenshots at HotAir would indicate nothing more than malicious behavior by the mob.
Have you been buried or banned by Digg? Let us know in the comments. It’s a story I’d like to do a bit more digging on (pardon the pun).
