Digg’s Transparency Opacity

Muhammad is far better at this than I am, so instead of me trying to be all eloquent about the lack of transparency at Digg, go read Muhammad’s post about Stacy Doss’s account being deleted from Digg.

I will add one thing: check out the comments on the post at Digg. You’ll find a surprising number of people defending Digg’s right to arbitrarily delete accounts. Don’t get me wrong – it’s Digg’s site and they do have the right to delete whatever and whoever they want, but their doing so really makes it hard to believe Kevin Rose when he talks about Digg as a “true, free, democratic social platform.”
