No Digg

I have about 65 subscriptions in my RSS reader. Most of them are for individual blogs that might post a story or two a day, but a few come from much higher volume sources.

The feed from Digg, on the other hand, has dozens every day. I actually click through on most of them and skim the comments, if not the referenced articles. I’m beginning to think this is a mistake. The comments often embody major portions of entrenched dogmatic stupidity and it makes me feel mean and angry just to lay eyes on them. I realize too, most of the stories are things I could do without reading. They rarely add to my understanding of the world in ways that I feel grateful for.

Digg is off my reading list.
