Digg up in arms over HD-DVD key

Update 5/2/07: After the community protest below, Kevin Rose has decided to allow the key to be posted, risking sending Digg to court.

[Image: Screenshot of Digg homepage]Digg staff recently posted a post concerning the removal of the HD-DVD key that is circulating the internet. In response to this, Digg users are protesting the removal seeing it as censorship.

Nearly all stories on the homepage are related to the HD-DVD key. (Click image for full page screenshot.) There were eight stories that specifically give the key, along with an additional six about the censorship itself. It is questionable whether or not digg will regain the respect that people had for them, especially after it was revealed that they were sponsored by HD-DVD.
