Digg got Burried
Digg uses to be a great social site where its users could share the websites they'd find interesting to the rest of the world. Webmaster that were wise enough could also enhace the SEO of their site by submitting its content periodically.
But today Digg has become a complete piece of sh**.
No more dofollow links (that means Google won'T crawl the addresses on it anymore)
It bans accounts with no reason
They inflate their own stats (There are getting more and more competition from Twitter and other sites)
The new bar actually shows a copy of your page and not the page itself (so you don't really get a hit every time someone goes on your site with it.

Whilst I agree with a lot of your points, I have to say that comment was a bit harsh. Digg is still a great site, and also a great resource for webmasters. Don't knock it too much

I have never been a fan of Digg. It never worked out for me :P And after reading that 65% of the homepage was controlled by certain sites, I just gave up. I really don't remember when I last visited Digg.
Stumble Upon is wayyy kewler!
