Hey everyone –

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted and I wanted to get the New Year underway by clearing up a couple of perceptions that have arisen around attempts to manipulate (game) the listing of home page stories on Digg.

It’s obvious to us that this is just a normal dynamic of a growing site and is similar to what sites like Google, Yahoo! and hundreds of other sites have been dealing with for years. But in the last several weeks the noise around this topic has grown and so I wanted to post and explain our position on some of this and some upcoming changes.
