First Release of Anti Usersubmitter.com Application

I’m quite annoyed to think that usersubmitter.com can so easily manipulate Digg. So I decided to put together a little application that finds any stories being manipulated, lets you know with one click and then if you double click it the story will open in your browser so you can bury it sharpish.

Have fun Smile

I anticipate usersubmitter may try to counter this and I plan on releasing faster than they can update so check back often if your version stops working. Equally if you have any problems running then let me know.

.NET 2 framework is required to run this program, sorry to Linux fans I may put together a version using Mono if there’s enough demand but i hope to bury them more quickly than that Smile

    Digg, The multi million dollar commercial site, Will be pleased to know there are drones out there fixing their highly flawed concept for them.

  3. Phill says:

    heh, nowhere as far as i know guys – by all means submit to digg if you like it.

    Apparently some top diggers are getting paid by Netscape to post and promote their stories. IMO, usersubmitter.com is just the tip of the iceberg!

    Some believe there’s a lot of gaming of the system now on Digg. Others think that Digg have just tightened up so much that it’s affecting the quality of front page content.

    Eop…
    Am keen to take this for a spin as am sick of wading through the trash, but cannot grap the app… 404 dude.

  7. Phill says:

    ok, sorry i moved the domains around warlord! I’ll see if I haven’t got that backed up somewhere for you?
