Revenge of the Diggers has been a boon to the alternative media, including our own Serf City blog, driving traffic to news and opinion items on a meritocracy basis. So it irks me that the suits at Digg are starting to mess around with their successful model by censoring some stories–particularly articles about how to hack high-definition DVDs. Fortunately, Digg users decided to hit back yesterday and resubmitted the censored articles by the thousands, crashing the Digg servers. The virtual bitch slap seems to have gotten¬†the suits’¬†attention, and they now vow not to allow any censorship going forward.
