Todd blogged about my submission to Digg yesterday on the Smith Project commenting that Digg is worthless and childish. I couldn’t agree more with his view, it’s spot on if you ask me. Digg is full of “fanboys” that bash anything that isn’t Linux, Apple, PHP or MySQL related. Frankly I was shocked that the Smith Project submission made it to the homepage (and it’s still there).
With that said I will say that the whole reason I submitted it was to give a props to the people over at the Smith Project for all their hard work and to give the project some more exposure.
I hate Digg. I love Slashdot. Why. Just go read the comments on some stories on both Digg and Slashdot. Slashdot has more intelligent, mature commenters then Digg. I find myself going to Digg to read the stories and not comments. With Slashdot, I find myself reading the comments and not caring about the stories themselves.
That being said, I know how to play the game. Digg has surpassed Slashdot in terms of page views and members and it’s a lot easier to manipulate and coax the less intelligent fanboys on Digg then on Slashdot.
