Several good moves from Web 2.0 companies last night:
- MyBlogLog apologized for Banning blogger and their latest decisions, unbanned ShoeMoney. I can imagine for myself what started to happen internally when influential bloggers started to post on boycotting the service. LOL.
- The other news comes from digg. Digg started to unblock sites yesterday (via TechCrunch). My site was also unblocked among others. blogs.x2line.com domain was blocked from digg for almost a year.
Some words regarding unblocking my site from digg.
"The changes they've made to Digg over the last few months, Rose says, allow them to monitor grouping behavior and stop it before it can drive a story to the home page. Thus, there is no real need to ban any particular site from Digg. They are confident that if a story from a previously banned site makes it to the home page, it deserves to be there."
In the past digg used to block sites that get threshold number of bad reports. During that time it was manipulated by groups and single influentials that spent hours sitting on the site. Because of this there had been too much false positives and many authoritive sites had been blocked (including mine).
