I was wondering how some truly stupid stories have gotten on the front page. I'm evern more perplexed when none of my good ones get there! It appears that a service has emerged on the web that pays Digg'ers to Digg stories. Submitters sign up for the service, and this service offers paid users to Digg the story to the front. Interesting.
This might explain how John's blog got boosted six times in a row and a bedding company asked him to review their product. Bedding company gets his ranking boosted, then asks him to review some weird bedding product because it looks like his opinion matters. Ahh... The crazy world of the web!
