    If this blog chooses to publish this kind of content I’ll have to unsubscribe to their feeds. Until now, the blog didn’t have this kind of digg/reddit top 10 spam posts and I really dont need them. I can easily search for things when I need them.

      John, if this stuff agitates you then by all means unsubscribe, but you can certainly do it without advertising your disgust. People like myself really don’t want to hear about how unhappy you are when we are happy to see a hotbed of great stuff put up here for our use and advantage. Next time save your time from posting negativity and use it to do something creative instead.
