Conservatives cheat to win

Jules Siegel discovers a, until now, secret cabal of crazy conservatives who figured out how to game Digg in order to elevate conservative friendly posts and bury liberal ones. Of course, gaming the algorithms has long been a right wing ploy to raise their profiles on the various internet ranking sites but using it to suppress free speech is a new and ugly wrinkle. Yet they're constantly whining about how "their voices" are being suppressed by the "liberal media."

I'm so old I remember when cheats were shunned in our society. Sadly, that doesn't seem to be the case anymore. Now it's a path to success within the wingnut wurlizter.
