A few months back we were alerted to the fact that Digg.com had refused to accept any new submissions of articles originating from both the Travolution Blog and the Travolution website.
We tried to post a few articles ourselves, only to be always greeted with the following message:
"This URL has been reported by users and cannot be submitted at this time."We understand, of course, that there are certain terms and conditions that users should adhere to [we hope that we have, of course] and our own posts to the site were limited to perhaps one a week.
However, all our efforts to obtain a response from Digg.com - via email - to get to the bottom of the problem, or at least be told why we have been barred, have been ignored.
We also - as a publication that consistently promotes the use of social networking as A Good Thing for the travel industry - attempted to get through to Digg via its media team, with no luck.
Surely the world of social media must extend to being sociable and therefore responding to emails from users?
Any solutions to this problem will be gratefully received.
