The Worlds Largest Digger

Worlds Largest Digger banned for Digging Too Much

One of my clients got a little carried away and Dugg too many articles. Yeah, that's right, too many Diggs. Digg immediately banned the account and sent this email from Digg.

Greetings from,

Your account has been banned under suspicion of using a bot/script/macro to Digg stories, which is explicitly against the Terms of Service ( you agreed to.

Over a period of 24 hours you Dugg 4000+ stories which is not indicative of organic Digg usage and determined that there is no way you would have been able to actually read the stories you Dugg in the time-frame.

Thank you for understanding as we must be vigilant in protecting against activities that compromise the Digg Community.

--Digg Support

I know this guy and I know that he did not use any automated software. He is simply "The worlds largest Digger." Not to be missed but also the owner of "The Worlds Largest Shout"

While I definitely recommend participating highly in Digg, do not just rip through results blindly Digging everything in your path.

I told my client that you have to submit good articles and comment intelligently for your Digg profile to prosper. Nobody listened and look what happens. Blindly Digging will just bring you up on the radar and you are NOT guaranteed your day in court with Digg.

Digg has so much spam and spam activities that if you brush up against the wrong side of Digg's TOS you are thru.

Pale Donkey Launched, Pale Donkey Riders Beware

A few of my frineds have just launched pale donkey, a blog dedicated to catching your drunken buddies in the act of hooking up with a pale donkey.

A pale donkey is the girl (or guy) that in a drunken desparate moment you may have made a huge mistake with.

Beware, now your pale donkey moments can be detailed forever! These guys accept camera phone pics and videos submitted to their number and they publish them as a blog post the next morning.

So the next time your pale donkey riding drunken buddy has the beer goggles on get that pic and it will live a life of it's own.
