Invasion of the digg-alikes - if you like advertising, see marktd or . If you fancy brainy stuff see braindigg. If you like to spy on blogs there's blinklist and blogniscent. There's even a chinese digg. If none if these tempt you build your own digg-clone. [a lot via]

Sheesh. Talk about non-necessary, ultra-niche, adding-air-but-no-substance-to-the-bubble, quickly-to-be-squashed, Web2.0 beta bullshit.

Not at all attacking the post, by the by.

pligg is another dig cloning OSS project. I think it's a bit more popular.

Yes, I'm evil. First and only "article" post to digg. I made a few pithy comments before I realized it was even more futile than posting to Fark or Slashdot.

I missed a grand opportunity to call your little stunt "delicious" there.

blasdelf - that meta thread made me post this. In evariste's comment though, I don't agree with the "those little | digg | reddit | [etc] blocks" being tasteful and ok. In fact I find them a little annoying. If your visitor is a digg/delicious/magnolia/whatever user don't they have their own darn "digg this" link in their toolbar? Am I missing something? Oh right, the links remind them to digg/delicious stuff. Well if you have to remind them, how good was that article you posted?

On longer well researched articles (see the via as an example) it probably wouldn't bother me so much but I've only ever seen it on blogs where their posts are only a paragraph long. There it only bothers navigation.
