General Petraeus was busted in an affair because he and his paramour thought that if the two of them shared a login on gmail and the wrote each other by leaving emails in the drafts folder and never "sending them" ... that that would keep them safe because the information "never went anywhere".

Stupidity and general misunderstanding of how the internet and internet applications work aside ... it did not change things. It will be seen as a new tool for marking enemies and aiding one's self.

+ - Digg listened, the digital revolt succeeds

An anonymous reader writes "From Kevin Rose' blog on dig: Today was an insane day. And as the founder of Digg, I just wanted to post my thoughts... In building and shaping the site I've always tried to stay as hands on as possible. We've always given site moderation (digging/burying) power to the community. Occasionally we step in to remove stories that violate our terms of use (eg. linking to pornography, illegal downloads, racial hate sites, etc.). So today was a difficult day for us. We had to decide whether to remove stories containing a single code based on a cease and desist declaration. We had to make a call, and in our desire to avoid a scenario where Digg would be interrupted or shut down, we decided to comply and remove the stories with the code. But now, after seeing hundreds of stories and reading thousands of comments, you've made it clear. You'd rather see Digg go down fighting than bow down to a bigger company. We hear you, and effective immediately we won't delete stories or comments containing the code and will deal with whatever the consequences might be. If we lose, then what the hell, at least we died trying. Digg on, Kevin"
