Digg This? Not a Chance in Hell.

It seems as though V7 Tech has been banned by Digg. Several people have reported that they’ve tried to Digg some of our stories, and are given the message that this URL has been reported. So if you find one of our stories so fascinating and cool that you just have to share it with the rest of the world, forget Digg – they don’t want us. Well guess what Digg, we don’t want you either.

An alternative to Digg is ShoutWire, in which users can submit stories and “Shout” them much in the same fashion as you can “Digg” a story on Digg. So what does ShoutWire have that Digg does not? It’s not as overloaded with crap and corrupt as Digg.

StumbleUpon is another site that you can use to share sites that you find to be interesting with others. It’s not quite the same as Digg or ShoutWire, but is very similiar, and is my favorite of the bunch. Not only is StumbleUpon not run by a bunch of immature teenie boppers, but it also tends to cater to a more targeted audience. Check out the “Buzz” page for the latest hot stories and sites.

So there you have it – the two best alternatives to Digg. Shout and Stumble, but just don’t Digg it.

    No reason at all? That sucks! Maybe they are afraid of v7n! 🙂

    I hate to tell you this, but Shoutwire is run by people who believe “asshair” is the story of the century! 🙂

    stumbleupon is the best social network site ever, as far as I’m concerned they invented the genre and do it better than anyone since them.

    digg must be careful or they will go the way of googe, sandboxing content for so long the results are stale in the name of not being spam
