A Digg.com user by the name of Johnnycrizman had this to say on the subject.
I've had enough of Destructoid's cheating. It angers me in knowing that they can make a quick buck just by "using" Digg's traffic. I mean, just look at this image I've conducted. They use their staff members to quickly Digg up a newly submitted article so it gains popularity. Take a look at their profiles, they Digg ONLY Destructoid articles.
