Right before heading to bed I had to check the Digg story one more time to see if the guys had come to their senses, and it seems they have (and just in time).

We had to make a call, and in our desire to avoid a scenario where Digg would be interrupted or shut down, we decided to comply and remove the stories with the code.

But now, after seeing hundreds of stories and reading thousands of comments, you’ve made it clear. You’d rather see Digg go down fighting than bow down to a bigger company. We hear you, and effective immediately we won’t delete stories or comments containing the code and will deal with whatever the consequences might be.

If we lose, then what the hell, at least we died trying.

I love that Kevin posted this himself, and even included the offending code in the subject. While they didn’t do the right thing at first, they couldn’t have saved this situation any classier. It brings to mind the Facebook RSS snafu of last year. Way to go Digg team!
