A day after Digg founder said that the company heard its users and will not delete stories containing the infamous HD-DVD code, related stories that have made it to Digg's front page a day or so ago, have mysteriously disappeared.
A search on Digg (Front Page Stories) for "09-F9" (the first set of digits of the HD-DVD code) only reveals one story which links to the Digg Blog. Where are all the rest that have been dugged thousands of times by Digg users?
Now try the search again, this time with the "Include Buried Stories" box checked. There you have it. The stories are buried.
Update: Shy who posted this story on Digg, tells me that the story has now been buried by Digg. You can't find it in the Upcoming Stories section anymore. I tried searching for it by typing "09-f9" but couldn't find it but when I searched again with the "Include Buried Stories" box checked, presto, it is there! So apparently, you can't really question Digg's actions without some consequence.
