After Digg pulled the HD-DVD decryption key article and banned a Digg user, that riled up the Digg community and soon the entire Digg home page was filled with stories containing the decryption key. As Mike over at TechCrunch says, "The users had taken control of the site, and unless Digg went into wholesale deletion mode and suspended a large portion of their users, there was absolutely nothing they could do to stop it."
But now, after seeing hundreds of stories and reading thousands of comments, you’ve made it clear. You’d rather see Digg go down fighting than bow down to a bigger company. We hear you, and effective immediately we won't delete stories or comments containing the code and will deal with whatever the consequences might be.
If we lose, then what the hell, at least we died trying.
