    I am more of a Reddit guy, but i do spend my fair share on Digg too. What are some other sites where i dont have to see the words: Obama, Mccain and the title to the newest hollywood movie?

    If I knew I would be there myself. I get tired of seeing the same articles or identical topics come up every few months. You can tell the people who dominate digg, and they have a particular agenda:

    conspiracies
    console fanboy rubbish
    'funny stuff'
    Linux stuff that gets ridiculously nerdy - eg why Debian xxx.xxx will kick Ubuntus ass
    or GNOME rules, KDE sucks. Who the heck cares????
    Jobs lovin.


    It can be interesting for a bit, but after a while I got tired of reading the favoured articles of a bunch of people who dont have anything better to do.

    I used to love Lifehacker, but the quality of articles on there has become so poor its a joke!!

    Sigh, I just want a site that is like these sites used to be at the start !
