    This just shows that even if you have a Massive website, you are still at a chance of getting slapped. Google makes no exceptions, not even if you are one of the most popular websites on the internet

    Who knows, maybe some bad blood leftover from the original buyout attempt of Digg by Google? Too bad Digg doesn't have deeper pockets, I would love them to sue Google regarding their discriminatory secret algorithm.

    this what you get when one company dominates a particular sector-competiton is good for every one amd the sooner a credible competitor arises for google the better.

    This was the exception proving the rule. Digg is not the leading social site it was a few years ago, so it's just been used to provide G with its "Sista Soulja" moment. Google has recently slapped two selected high profile sites (BBC, Digg) that they could afford to slap, to put out evidence that, yes, they could punish the big boys. Now they'll go back to their normal mode of protecting big Inc sites while slapping all the small IMers. If anybody complains about the favoritism, G will hold out the Digg example for the next decade, to show they they can too punish the large sites.

    Not sure if it's because of the internet backlash or if they are being honest, but supposedly google claims that they inadvertently slapped the whole website while trying to remove certain spammy links.

    It is now back in the search engine...
