Most publishers are thrilled to get on Digg — the site still sends a firehose of traffic.
But if you don’t like the idea of Digg’s new “DiggBar” — which frames your site in a Digg toolbar, designed to keep people on Digg, and not your site — Daring Fireball writer John Gruber has a solution. Gruber wrote a script to block DiggBar users from accessing his content, and he’s shared it.
Why would you want to do that?
“Digg sends a tremendous amount of traffic to sites that make it to the top of their front page, but it’s the worst kind of traffic: mindless, borderline illiterates,” he writes. “Good riddance, really.”
