Prom story disappears from Digg despite 14,000 diggs

with one comment

The popular “Prom… ya digg?” story on Digg.com has disappeared from the site.

Check it out for yourself – http://digg.com/people/Prom_ya_digg.

Despite more than 14,000 diggs, the story has vanished without a trace.  I checked my history and it doesn’t appear there anymore.  Both of the comments I left are gone as well.

Will the story be on this week’s Diggnation?  It was one of the top stories.  We’ll have to wait and see…

By the way, here is a link to the picture from the original story.

Digg user asks girl to prom with one of the top stories of the year

leave a comment »

Cargo8, a fellow geek on the social news website Digg, used a picture story to ask a chick to his prom. Apparently, the chick turned him down or something because he is now asking us to bury the story – it has 12,734 diggs and ranks on the second page of the top stories of the past year. That’s one doodle that can’t be undid, homeskillet.

Just be proud of what you’ve done. I bet there are a lot of girls that think this is awesome.
