DIGGERS REBELLED HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE.
AND DIGG'S FOUNDER APOLOGIZED 24 HOURS LATER: "Hey everyone, we temporarily banned this last night. We flagged it as a potential TOS violation, but after looking into it further we promptly unbanned it. Our fault. Digg on. -Kevin"
|As soon as FOX News porn made it to the Digg front page..
|They removed it from Digg..
|And our account was deleted..
|We email them:
Within the past few minutes, someone at Digg apparently deleted a Digg submission entitled "FOX News Porn. All porn, all from FOX News. Seriously. (possibly NSFW)" by the user account "bravenewfilms". Clearly someone thought this was an actual porn site -- but it's not -- it's a PARODY site. It's taking images and video broadcast by the FOX News Network and putting them together on a website designed to LOOK like a porn site, encouraging people to contact FOX News advertisers.
That submission had Adult Content included within it and is not allowed
on Digg, as per the TOS you agreed to when you signed up. If you agree
not to submit material that breaks the TOS again, we will reinstate your
account. The offending domain has been blocked and will not be reinstated.
The submission strictly contained content that FOX News had broadcast. Digg won't allow content that FOX News will air? Seriously? Please double check the web site (http://foxnewsporn.com), and please confirm that Digg doesn't allow content that is broadcast on FOX News. That's all I ask. I will certainly not repost something you don't allow, I just want to be 100% clear on this.
Yes, that submission was Adult content. Yes, it was against our TOS,
even though it was broadcast on FOX. Unfortunately the domain will not
be unbanned. As stated before, if you agree not to submit anything that
breaches our TOS, we will reinstate your account.
