Steve Mallett & Digg Code

Yesterday there was a extremely popular digg story "O'Reilly writer Steve Mallett has stolen digg's code". Steve recently created two digg clone sites - iTunesLove and LinuxFilter. The submitter of the story noticed that these two sites were using digg's CSS and at least one digg image (for tabs). What the submitter didn't know was that Steve was using the CSS/images from the open source project 'Pligg'. The clone developers have been notified, and the image will be removed in the next release.

When a story is accusatory, sometimes its often better to research further before digging (I dugg the story too). I'm happy to see the counter story, including Steve's blog, was also dugg to the homepage. More features coming, including a bury for 'inaccurate' posts.
