Also, apparently many of the Diggers were upset with my simple blog, and had my front page article "buried," which meant it was sent away from the front page- into oblivion somewhere. The point is, that article was a very good way for me to reach new audiences and it was abruptly taken away from me by some unfriendly Diggers.
Something that really upset me was that several other articles around mine (on Digg) were not buried as mine was. I wanted answers.
After a little research, I found out that an article can be buried due to an algorithm that resides in Digg. Here's what Digg's "Help" section says:
"The promotion and burying of stories is managed by an algorithm developed by Digg. There is no hard number of [buries] to [remove] a story. It's based on a sliding scale that takes several factors into consideration..."
So basically, I would just have to deal with it.
Needless to say, I'm more than a little upset about the whole ordeal. I'm wondering if any of my readers/visitors have had a similar issue with Digg. Let me know if you have or not, please.
