Loving Digg…why?

Looking unhappy with all that criticism directed at Digg, Om Malik writes:
is it just fashionable to diss Digg!

Om is missing the point here. It is not just people who can't get to the Digg front page that are complaining. When people write about what's wrong with Digg, they are showing their disappointment with Digg. Digg could have changed online news with its voting system.

However, Digg has become a victim of its own success. There are more than 4000 stories daily and no proper way other than Cloud View or 400 page views to look at all the stories present for display.

Secondly, what goes to the front page does not necessarily mean quality stories.

IMHO, Digg can handle no more than 500 news equably, without the ‘cabals’ and moderators coming into play. I think Digg should have stayed with Technology and left other topics to others. The same people who vote on tech stories vote on politics, get my point?

I am also disappointed with online newspapers not doing enough to create Digg-like community. We only have Calacanis’ Netscape changes to thank for. We need more Diggs.

Right, we need more thematic diggs or user-driven systems without voting, such as http://newsbuffer.com

This site writes about a page that got 800 Diggs and only 300 views! It says 68% of Digged items don't get corresponding views. People are acting like herds, and read only headlines.

Newspapers didn't even pick up on bookmarking their stories for their readers, let alone that they would introduce a digging system. There simply doesn't seem to be a middleground for papers to advocate online reading with their paper version. Similar starting up "a digg" isn't easy with a high entry barrier before it becomes interesting. You see many digg sites die out because with one or three digg maximums per story nobody cares.

I think that a proper review system in place can solve the quality problem and eventually all major front page problems of Digg.
