Do you think this is funny?
To me it's sad that SFWeekly thinks it funny. So vote: amusing or downer? via @

i don't think it's funny or a downer. Just lame really. -
I laughed at the "Interesting Comments Thread From a Porn Site" (because it's true). -
Amusing. Only a downer if you mistakenly thought Digg was the future of news. -
It's funny because it's true. Sites like Digg are not good sources for hard journalism and news, because they operate on "what's the most popular" basis. Hard journalism is necessary, but never popular. -
I think it's funny, and sad. I know a few folks who think Digg is revolutionizing journalism by allowing hte individual user to be their own editor, to determine the headlines. But what I think they're missing is that online social sites have a group think- well modeled by the headline, "100 sexiest geek girls" that tilts any kind of utopian vision of an individualized paper. -
I didn't find it amusing, exactly, but it is indicative of why I've migrated away from "digging" to "tweeting" as I find those that I follow are better filters and markers of good information than Digg. In return, I hope I do the same for others. It's also why I am selective about whom I follow and unfollow those who post drivel. -
Agree with Anika... Not a downer - but just not very well done. The unfortunate thing is that the design is not that far off from their design... I swear that on their home page I'm counting like 20 different Fonts.... -
Amusing. Agree with Leo's comment. -
Amusing, but they might try removing the scroll bars from the "Newspaper" -
