Yahoo Dugg Digg

Here's a funny one.

This 'ripping' happened at the highest level. It aint Filipino developers making pinoy versions of Digg locally such as astig and oks (which by the way, I use). Creating 'pinoy' versions, it's just fine but this is Yahoo! man! Great internet innovators are in there.

Yahoo! wanted to get some suggestions and I say to Yahoo!, be careful with what you are wishing for. They made Digg-like suggestion interface and proudly says it's digg-style (at least Yahoo! linked up Digg.com).

We call it a Suggestion Board — you can browse suggestions from other site visitors or post your own. Digg-style voting means we can quickly discover what’s most important to users. In addition to reading feedback from other users, you’ll find responses from Yahoo! employees about the issues. Product teams regularly read and take action on your feedback. Though we aren’t always going to immediately act on it, it’s incredibly helpful to us in making the best sites we can… and we’ve even been known to reward great suggestions with some Yahoo! schwag.

Yahoo! wanted suggestions, right? Now they got suggestions and more. (Mainly from Digg users.) Sampling here. There are still level-headed Yahoo! visitors that actually suggested legitimate stuff but majority were Digg fans that brusquely bashed Yahoo!

I might head to Yahoo! suggestion site now, it's time to suggest to Yahoo!, to just try to be original than that.
