Top User 'Zaibatsu' Banned from Digg
So why was Saddler banned? It wasn't associated with the recent bannings of other digg users over using Greasemonkey scripts. Rather the ban was handed down after Saddler submitted a website which was, in the words of an email Saddler received from Digg, "spam and a solicitation of products and/or services".
It's difficult to know what the wider Digg community thinks, but Zaibatsu is friends with a lot of other diggers and those diggers obviously want to see him back.
A user named Bianconeri4ever said:
"It's a thorny issue to be honest. In a perfect world the whole issue would have been resolved between Digg and Zaibatsu privately. It's just the timing of the ban was very unfortunate. In the light of the 80+ users banned, unbanning Zaibatsu would put Digg in a very bad light, that there are some users who are above the law, even if the banning of the 80 and the banning of Zaibatsu are two separate issues. It's a real shame because Zaibatsu's is a great guy, he is very helpful with beginners and loves the Digg community."
What's your take on this issue? Should Zaibatsu be exiled from Digg forever?
