Digg Black Market

I guess this is a sign of the times – a site dedicated to gaming digg, called User/Submitter. But
there’s no reason such a site couldn’t exist for del.icio.us, or stumbleupon, or
netscape – or any site that relies on voting. Needless to say, I hope this site
gets squashed ASAP – it’s at the same pond scum level as the RSS
Ripoff Merchants
, in my book…

On the ‘Submit’ page, it states:

“Cost: $20, plus $1 per Digg.

After completing the form below, you will be taken to PayPal. Once your PayPal
payment is received, your Digg submission will be given to User/Submitter
users to promote on Digg.com.

User/Submitter users are then given the chance to digg your submission and
other stories for $0.50. After your submission has reached your desired number
of diggs, you will be emailed a report.

We cannot guarantee that your submissions will hit the front page of Digg. We
reserve the right to reject or cancel any submission for any reason.

If User/Submitter is unable to fulfill your requested number of verified diggs
within 48 hours, you will be refunded the amount of Diggs paid for but not
received within 5 working days.

All User/Submitter transactions are private.”

And on the ‘User’ page it has a registration form, plus a note: “Pay-out:
$0.50 per Digg.”

No word on how many users they have right now, but looks like it set up shop just recently. I seriously doubt it will work anyway.
