Yahoo! has recently announced the launch of its own digg – like
service, Yahoo! Suggestion Boards. This service allows you to post
comments and vote for them in a manner similar to Digg.com. However,
this new service has been met by the complaints of digg users as it is
accused of being too similar to the site.

There are suggestions boards available for Yahoo! Answers, Autos,
Autos Custom, My Yahoo!, Pipes, Real Estate, Site Explorer, Travel, TV,
Upcoming.org, the Yahoo! Developer Network, and the Yahoo! Developer
Network Gallery.`

Even though, this is not a new Digg, but a similar service. It does
not allow you to suggest articles or blogs the way Digg does. The Digg
community, however, doesn’t agree and continues to launch complaints at
the search engine giants.

Moreover, it should be noted that imitation is the best form of
flattery and that Yahoo! does mention Digg in its presentation. Also,
Digg.com does not have copyright on online voting.

Myles says:

"Hopefully Yahoo! will buy digg and put an end to all this complaining."
