You have to admit, that @graywolf character surely livens up our space, doesn’t he? That Mickey fanatic ain’t afraid of anything or anybody. Someone I’d surely want on the team covering me back when necessary. I didn’t realize @graywolf wasn’t real fond of Kevin Rose. While there may be some hatred there by my peers, I have to give the young man credit for his accomplishments to date. I can respect all who have done what Kevin has done. You too @graywolf, you’re the man! XO :)

@pageoneresults his acomplishments I respect, his continued reapting of the "digg is a democracy moderated by the users" and denail of the "bury brigade", "auto bury", "domain white list", "we don’t moderate the hompage" propoganda is a completely different story.

Great post, Michael.  Although I like the DiggBar if I happen to be working with Digg, I agree on the irritations of dealing with iFrames.  It will be most interesting to see how this evolves.

Based on this post I completely revoke all previous opinions of michael gray and I am going with [personal and profane comment edited out by admin]Seriously, Michael - "My cranky cynical old heart bursts with joy at the mere thought of Kevin Rose working the drive through window of McDonald’s asking people if they “want fries with that”."That’s a really screwed up thing to hope for.

@andrewsho  Not at all, I’m just really surprised at michael, someone who I previously had a lot of respect for allow his childish envy to manifest like that.Oh well, who would want to be "Kevin Rose, young, smart, attractive millionaire, dot-com entrepeneur" when you could be "Michael Gray"Whatever, maybe I just need to lighten up.

@Calamier it has nothing at all to do with envy, I dislike the fact that the digg founders blame everything on thier users and claim thier system is a democracy, when it’s heavily edited and moderated.I’m not everyone’s cup of tea and I’m fine with that. But I will say if you limit your reading only to people you agree with or like, you just might miss out on learning something new from someone who appraoches things in a different way.my two drachmas

This is pretty basic parasite stuff. Why does it need to be here? Even a lamb could come up with this.

@haroldIt’s a shame we aren’t all skilled parasite host finders like you. I love seeing stuff like this it keeps you thinking outside of the box. It beats the barrage of "I use twitter to make monies on the interwebs". I have yet to understand why people want to follow other people on twitter.It’s my opinion that people get lost focusing on whitehat blackhat technique based garbage whilst forgetting the strategy behind it all which is a million times more important. You can have a lame technique come off successfully with the right strategy and determination and a great technique get destroyed by a retarded plan.

@ georgiepeorgie "I have yet to understand why people want to follow other people on twitter."It’s called being social, being interested, actually caring about someone other than yourself. I thought my comment the other day about people not understanding the dynamics of social interaction was tongue in cheek, but some of you just keep on proving that you have no clue whatsoever when it comes to how humans interact. Having said that "You can have a lame technique come off successfully with the right strategy and determination and a great technique get destroyed by a retarded plan."Wow, what super great innovative advice.

This is really pretty basic BH stuff. I am sure anyone involved in SEO will have heard this before. Consider it buried.
