Does Elinor Mills seriously think Digg is filled with just abusers of the system. True their are plenty users that unite to help promote each others content and keep it on the front page of various categories. Sure the system can be taken advantage of, but surely she doesn't think this type of social networking doesn't work overall right?

I have a good feeling she will be hearing plenty more flack from many SEO blogs, especially since this came out the week of SES Chicago.
