Is Digg currently "diggin'" its own grave?

Talk about a community uproar.. If you haven't notice already, has gone into a censorship/banning rampage after all the stories submitted regarding the leaked HD-DVD Hex cracking code key. Banning the stories is one thing, but the censorship has gone as far as banning users and even stories that don't deal with the leaked key directly.

Is the so called "User submitted" website reaching a turning point? Massive user exodus ahead? As of right now nobody knows what will happen.

Meanwhile Kevin, nor anyone in charge of Digg has stepped up to the plate and commented on these recent events. I'm pretty sure they are aware of what's going on..

Truth be told, we can only wait and see. Meanwhile other user submitted content sites like Slashdot or Reddit are carrying the stories and nobody has gotten banned..
