    Coming to Digg from forums like Slashdot, the comments section has a lot to be desired. Don't expect any sort of intellectual discussion, but rather something more of what you'd find on youtube.

    If there was a news story of Ron Paul taking a dump, it would show up on the front page of Digg.
