Bank Ad Gets Thousands of Diggs! Seriously?

Citibank ad somehow goes popular on Digg. I’ve read many comments on Digg from trolls who know nothing of the economics of the web. And then…


I found this amusing. I really did. I can’t tell you how many comments I’ve read on Digg complaining about sites with ads or sites that use power diggers to work the system or some other comment from trolls who know nothing of the economics of the web. And then … I saw this:

It’s an advertisement for Citibank and it got (at the time of writing this) 2,662 Diggs, 183 comments, and 63,362 views! C’mon! Seriously?

I don’t mind the occasional funny pix, crazy videos, or whatever silliness that gets mixed in with the more serious news of the day (after all, I’ve uploaded my share of nonsense). But, if you’re going to slam sites for ad placement, then for the love of all that is sacred in geekdom, please don’t digg an advertisement.
