After the masses got sick of his obvious gaming of the system and got him banned from Digg , Daniel has been going on a little tirade with each new post. He complains about a coordinated attack on his site, and has people write an e-mail to Digg to complain. The funny thing is, after complaining that the attack on RDM is coordinated, he them not only provides the subject for the Digg complaint e-mail, but the whole body of the e-mail as well. (Someone might call that a “coordinated attack on Digg.”)
Well, with his last post, he has taken this one step further, and he now officially lost his mind. Since Digg is too “pro-Microsoft” and no pro-Apple article EVER makes it to the front page he is trying to get his minions to send Apple an e-mail to have them create a competitor to Digg. All for his OWN interest. Not for real competition.
How do I know this? Well, take a look at the pre-written body of the e-mail…
Please build an alternative to Digg.com as suggested by Hyperblogging The Web at http://www.roughlydrafted.com/RD/Home/6A50F25B-9E50-45B4-AA17-F145B5D091EE.html because the world needs honest and reliable sources of information
Yup. He wants an alternative to Digg. But he wants it to only focus on Roughly Drafted
It really is kind of sad. Daniel is an unemployed “consultant” who was relying on the ad revenue he was getting every time his articles made it to the front page. And with the holidays coming, he is desperate. It is also sad that I think he really believes the bullshit that comes out of his mouth. He really thinks that pro-Apple stories never stay on Digg and that the site is mostly pro-Microsoft. I guess he thinks that Digg is mostly pro-Sony, and pro-RIAA/MPAA as well. And that they all shop at Best Buy, and ALWAYS purchase the extended warranty at the Best Buy register.
And the saddest part is that he thinks Apple is going to do something like this just because they receive a few dozen e-mails (from about 6-7 different people) suggesting it.
Besides, why does the world need another site where Apple fanboys can all collectively orgasm over the latest set of inane Mac commercials? They’ve already got Digg to do that.
