UNBANNED! DIGG FOUNDER APOLOGIZES

FoxNewsPorn.com. This parody website consists solely of images and videos broadcast on FOX News in the hopes people will ask advertisers to stop showing their ads on FOX.

Once the site launched, I submitted it to various social bookmarking sites, including Digg. The submission quickly appeared on the Digg’s homepage, only to be deleted and our account banned. I emailed Digg, thinking the submission was mistaken for a real porn site, only to be told the site is “adult content,” and is against their Terms of Service, “even though it was broadcast on FOX.” See the details with images here.

So Digg bans what FOX News broadcasts. It’s hard to believe that’s all there is to it, considering there are often sites with content that could be considered “adult” on Digg. As I write this, the submission “The Top 20 ‘Side Boobs’ of All-Time [Kinda NSFW]”, a completely gratuitous web site with adult content, is #4 on digg.

Hmm, this couldn’t have anything to do with Digg partnering with the WSJ, and looking to be aquired by Rupert Murdoch, could it?
