Digg Reddit

Paul Graham:

Twice now, stories that linked to reddit have gone out in Digg’s rss feed as frontpage stories, only to disappear from the frontpage.

This implies one of two things: either (a) Digg’s staff is manually removing stories, or (b) they’re such bumblers technically that the software handling the rss feed for frontpage stories is upstream of the software deciding what stories make it onto the frontpage, and thus has to guess what the latter will do.
