So Digg is dying...

With the introduction of Digg V4 and the mass exodus of Diggers to the golden halls of Reddit, I've got to wonder... when do we get a Reddit button? We've got buttons for Digg and StumbleUpon, but where's the Reddit love?

  • I've never visited any of those sites, and have no idea what they are for.
  • I see nothing wrong with Digg. As a news aggregator and not a repository for a peculiar brand of humor in which references to things(bacon, narwhals, scientology, etc) are mistaken for jokes, Digg works. I suppose if I wanted that brand of mental diarrhea, I would be more than glad to join and utilize Reddit, but until that day I think Digg will continue to suffice.

    Philistine!

    Seriously, though, the new layout and autosubmission system has forced diggers out like refugees. Notice how almost everything on Digg's frontpage was submitted from Reddit? I think you see my point, Rather Bastard... er, Dashing.

    Since when has Scientology not been a joke?

    I'm pretty sure if your cult is invented by a grade B scifi author, no one is going to ever take you seriously.

    You forgot the bit about it being for-profit.

    Yeah, but that's more malicious than hilarious.
