Social networking site Digg made its users quite mad today after it removed several news submits about the HD DVD key. OCIA.net discusses the Digg / HD-DVD fiasco in their latest article.

"A day earlier, Digg moderators pulled a story from the site that contained the hacked HD DVD encryption key. Digg did not want to put itself in a position to "break the law" and potentially be sued. Diggers caught wind of this "act against Democracy" and, in a fight against what many considered unjust censorship, began submitting story after story that contained the HD DVD key... and they were all getting dugg to the front page! And thus, the revolution was kick into warp speed."
