OK, I’ve been out of the loop for a week. I’ve been on holiday. No computer. Kind of liberating.
Danny Sullivan tried to debate with Diggers about SEO last week. They voted him off.
I thought I’d bring this up, because I’ve tried debating the occasional point with Diggers, too. A waste of time, as I’d get more intelligent debate if I tried debating with a cat. Rather than debate, many simply decide they don’t like something, and vote it down. Beats having to think, I guess.
Are there any intelligent debates on Digg? Just one? I don’t think I’ve seen any. The way Digg is setup, debating is virtually impossible, as opposing viewpoints are often silenced, leaving only the “wisdom” of the mob. Truth becomes the first victim because they simply can’t handle it.
Digg produces some interesting stuff. But the threads are a waste of time.
