A Word You Can't Digg ...

The Onion's "First Homo Leagues Player Shatters MLB Sexuality Barrier" was Dugg by 63 people by the time I posted this ("had been Dugg?" "got Duggen?").

That is to say, it was recommended by 63 users of digg.com, where it appeared as "First ***** Leagues Player Shatters MLB Sexuality Barrier." (According to the site's FAQ, active users may turn the profanity filter off if they wish to enjoy terms such as "fuck" and "homo" which, as far as I'm concerned, are both perfectly fine words.)

But, if you're not logged in, there are some words you just can't Digg.

to this whole "baseball" thing
than I ever imagined.
