As a result, many in the digg community are becoming disillusioned with the "democratic" news site and retaliating in clever and inventive ways. Search digg for HD-DVD song lyrics, coffee mugs, shirts, and more for a taste of the rebellion."

Fo0eY writes: The folks at Digg.com have let the social news genie out of the bottle, and now they can't control it. Since the HD-DVD encryption code was discovered and published, readers at Digg have been repeatedly submitting stories with the 16 digit hex code in the titles and bodies. Just as quickly as these posts crawl up the Digg charts, admins seem to be deleting them.

+ - Operation: Bite - US plans sneak attack on Iran

Submitted by Elenthalion
Elenthalion writes: Russian intelligence has warned the the U.S. is planning an April 6th sneak attack (code named "Operation: Bite") on Iranian military and nuclear research targets.

Iraq comparisons aside; our government is planning to launch a 3rd war front.

The first rule of intelligent tinkering is to save all the parts. -- Paul Erlich
