Digg Clone? Not Really

It seems Digg users are in a big fuss over the new suggestion site that Yahoo launched to gain feedback from users, simply because it implements a digg-like voting feature so people can show that they agree with a suggestion.

However, the fact that you can vote up a submission in no way makes Yahoo's site compete with Digg. Digg is a news service (one I use quite often, and enjoy very much), but Yahoo's site is simply for Yahoo to gain feedback, probably so they can improve their services. And yet Digg users are arming themselves and preparing to sacrifice Yahoo to the web gods.

This is like a donut shop owner getting mad at a bagel shop owner for stealing his business.

Its the fact that they totally ripped off Diggs site design.

Isn't that a compliment to Digg's social voting mechanism?
