Today Digg got clobbered with too many diggs for this HD-DVD key that was circulating in the web.As far as I know this is a very first unseen big crisis sitiation for such a popular site.Power of digitization and Digg has to take the brunt of this anger.
It’s the most circulated number of the week. Sixteen hexadecimal digits that unlock the wonder of most currently released HD-DVD titles from the surly clutches of the AACS revenue content protection system. Sixteen digits that have been posted in so many places — and in many cases, removed only to be reposted — that they’re hard to avoid.
What is digg going to do now ?
-Shut down its website for maintainance
-Contract Google search programmers to effectively filter all HD-DVD posts from its front page
-Consult Microsoft to host digg.com temporarily which Microsoft servers will anyway take care of auto website shutdown because of load issues.
-Digg ganging up with Apple to garner moral support.If I remember correctly Steve Jobs was not in favor of all these DRM stuff.
-Is it possible ANYWAY to change that 16 hex digits to make it invalid.The invalid key message stop these numerous posts.
-Digg just apologise to users and get back to business.
-Digg getting rid of all users who posted and digged for that HD-DVD key.No more users for digg.
All of them are related to that HD-DVD key …..Did we get to see this in digg..WOW..
