Is anybody else sick of unsubstantiated rumor being dugg to the frontpage? It is really starting to get out of hand. Here are a couple recent examples:
UPDATE!!! I just heard from an inside source close to digg that there will be a 'bury as rumor' option, and possibly a 'bury as rumour' option for our UK friends.
Here is an interesting article that examines the inner working of a good rumor. Check it out. In other news, I challenge someone to submit this with the title "Digg to add 'bury as rumor' option???" for a good dose of irony.
Also, I made up this idea so it is completely untrue, but seriously people, hold blogs accountable to the same scrutiny you would a major newspaper or news channel. I think I will do some research to see how many rumors on digg are actually true. Be back later.
