A great write up on the controversy with Digg and Mr Babyman.
For months, a small but outspoken number of Digg’s millions of other users have complained about seeing as many as three or four MrBabyMan submissions on the front page at one time. As we write this he has two front page stories. Those successes are outshined, however, by the most popular story on Digg Friday night: a cartoon accusing MrBabyMan of stealing stories from smaller Digg users.

A community where the most ’famous’ user is known as Mr Babyman and we’re surprised when they act like spoiled children?

Not sure it was really a revolt as much as revolting.

It wasn’t a revolt so much as an attack against one member who happens to be very good at what he does.

Does Digg really matter in the first place? Some of the stuff being submitted seems to be from fourth-graders. My apologies to elementary school children everywhere.
