Removing ads was good. It looks so much better without them. Your stripped version looks cleaner even with much left, but functionality is a little limited without blog and email links.

I tried to add a lot of you in the past but then I received "You have been adding friends too quickly. Please wait a while then try again." So now I added a couple of more, and now I hit the barrier again :)
I predict an article by Philipp: 20 ways to get digged (or dugg).
Anybody wants to become friends with btw. ? I already asked once in the forum but I guess nobody likes German Poles wearing Mexican hats:
Befriend me at:
More, including Digg, to come. One of my criteria for the test and comparison will be the willingness of the existing community to socialze with you. Otherwise such services will fail as "social" bookmarks.

There are ads on Digg.com? (goes and disables AdBlock to have a look)
