THE world's most popular technology news website collapsed today after a digital revolt led by its users. The technology news site Digg.com, was unavailable this afternoon after users began attacking the site after it censored stories reporting how to hack high-definition DVD discs. Digg is a so-called ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã…Â“social newsÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã‚Â site that publishes stories according to votes by its users and receives one per cent of the total internet traffic in the US. When the DVD hacking story was taken down, users rebelled and began re-submitting the sttories by the thousands. The site, which accounts for one per cent of all web traffic in the US market, soon collapsed under the weight of the attack. But Digg founder Kevin Rose, who made the decision to pull the reports off the site, later joined users in agreeing to not allow censorship in the future. "After seeing hundreds of stories and reading thousands of comments, youÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã¢Â„Â¢ve made it clear," Mr Rose said on his blog. "YouÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã¢Â„Â¢d rather see Digg go down fighting than bow down to a bigger company. " We hear you, and effective immediately we wonÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã¢Â„Â¢t delete stories or comments containing the code and will deal with whatever the consequences might be."
