Is Digg rigged?

Standard

Well according to this blog post, digg is a place where some “alliances” of people are responsible for the most of the top stories.

I had heared this before, but never read something with so many proofs on that

What it comes down to is there very literally is a group that controls Digg. If you are within this group and you submit a story, you are more or less guaranteed 10-15 (or more) automatic diggs from this group. What happens to the people who don’t have such a luxury and only get the default single vote like everyone else? This only encourages a cycle where those who are getting votes will continue to get more and more, as they feed each off each other and pat each other on the back.
