    For those of you who visit www.digg.com regularaly, you probably know that they have began to insert ads into the list of "dugg" stories. I, personally, find this most annoying. A new one comes up every time you load the page, so let's give them a message by burying as many as we can :cool:

    When I heard about it I thought it was a good idea, but it has become annoying and intrusive really fast.

    The more diggs an ad gets, the less they have to pay digg. By burying them, you are encouraging digg to keep using them.

    Firefox's Ad Block Plus plug-in gets rid of them btw. But I don't see them as that annoying

    Weird, I figured it would be the other way around. A lot of those ad deals are pay per click deals. Anyway, as someone else pointed out, AdBlock works wonders. I didn't even know they had done this.

    Damn them for trying to make a profit or stay in business.
