*Your account has been disabled due to misuse.*
Apparently, digg feels that I was gaming the system and had many submissions hit the front page unfairly. Which is simply not true. The situation is pretty simple — I have many friends at college who also use Digg, and the entire network goes through a proxy. Many of my friends digg my stories while at the college campus and I've even had a few friends register at digg through the college campus.
I'm sure some of the Digg admins were checking for unusual activity and stumbled upon this phenomenon; users registering under the same IP address and digging submissions by the same user(s).
I feel this is a problem at Digg — they can not, without a doubt, prove that I have gamed the system, yet they ban me anyways. This had happened to my first account under the name "pdesigns", my latest account being "pdonline". The reason this is a problem is that some of the top users at digg (I was currently ranked around 100) are being unfairly treated and being punished for no reason."
Just another reason why Digg needs help and has a flawed system and why Slashdot is superior in this matter. At least Slashdot's user base doesn't get punished for their contributions."
