NO More Gaming Digg....
The idea is to make the site more useful to more people. A select few have long had the most power over Digg's content.
"We’re constantly tweaking the Digg algorithm to ensure that a unique and diverse set of Diggs drives the content on the homepage," says Anton Kast on Digg the Blog. "We’ve made a few notable enhancements to our promotional algorithm recently, to ensure that all Diggers have a fair chance at getting their submitted stories promoted to the homepage.

Power users have been gaming Digg for quite a while. A common complaint is that the average Digg user barely has a chance to get their submissions as much exposure as the power users.
