    Wow, I didn't think someone would actually post an advert to a site that is the 88th most popular site on the net. I think everyone on here should have heard of it by now

    That said, it is sometimes a good site and sometimes a bad site - full of ignorant people who think they know everything about the world.

    Very web 2.0. Confusing, trashy and full of mis-information.

    yeah suprisingly few people know about it i thought, considering how big it apparently is.
    Admittidly it isnt as good as it was a year or so ago, the ranking systems fooked. But behind the front page there is usually good stuff.

    Is that a dig at web 2.0?
    The layout and looks pretty good i thought, using grid system and shiny icons, yeah its web 2.0.
    mis-information partially granted though haha.

    I use [and prefer Reddit] It is just that I had not seen DiggRiver until today and thought it worth noting here.

    Haven't seen http://news.ycombinator.com though. Checking that shortly.

    Thanks.

    Good to know you trust them so much as to share passwords with them in the clear...

    I have had so much spam from examples like http://www.raymond.cc/blog/archives/...hing-websites/

    It might be just me but I don't really get news aggregation websites like those, they've always just seemed full of rubbish.

    I much prefer going to a site I know I like, opening interesting articles in new tabs and just reading them. RSS is also just an unnecessary middle-man between headlines and the stuff I actually want to read.

    RSS is awesome. I dont even need to open a website, I have all the feeds in the toolbar in firefox from about 7 different news sources, edugeek feed, TV releases, The register etc etc, and just click on the icon and get all the articles. I can then just open the relevent ones in new tabs. Really good. IMO
