Digg taken offline.

Posted in Rants by rip747 on April 30, 2007

At the time of this post (10:30 PM EST), it seems that Digg has been taken offline. Early there was a post about a certain key that you could use to circumvent HDDVD DRM. It was said that most sites that posted the key were taken down with force. Could Digg have taken itself down while it scrubs it’s database removing any record of the post?

UPDATE: The post is still on the technology homepage and is now at 3765 diggs

UPDATE: Seems that Digg might have gotten a taste of it’s own medicine.

UPDATE: Apparently Digg has taken the post down. Last I checked before crashing last night it was somewhere near 15,000 digg.

    Wow, that’s pretty trippy. But what are are they going to do if people accidentally memorized it :-/?

    I happened to see that post last night. It was at nearly 6000 digggs and climbing at the rate of roughly 100 d/minute. I can’t find that post on digg now though.

    Stupid.
