Blocking Digg Users

By Dave

Nathan Smith of has decided that Digg users, are not worth the trouble and has begun blocking them from his site.

It is with a heavy heart that I have decided to do this. After being on the front page of twice in the last two months (1, 2), I have learned that these are not the type of visitors I want on my site. Let me prefix this explanation by saying I do not have anything against the creators of Digg.

He gives his reasons, and instructions on how to block users coming from Digg. A very good read for those wanting to block users coming from social bookmarking sites, that have no intention on commenting or adding value to the site.

Could this become more commonplace as the Digg user base grows?
