In the past, I have seen quite a few sites that display the popular social media site Digg.com, but this one is probably the weirdest I have come across.
ErectionTV.com, by domain, would lead one to expect something a little more pornographic, but when visited, you find a real time duplicate of Digg.com’s front page.
Don’t get too excited though as ErectionTV.com is a ‘look, but don’t touch’ kind of site. Trying to click through to any pages will get you only a lonely 404 page.
Searching around, I found that this domain was actually purchased for $1.04 off Ebay on January 31, 2009.
As always, these types of sites make you wonder what sort of fanboy would make their site into a Digg clone for no other reason than to get their rocks off…
The only other company I have found so many duplicate sites of is Yahoo, which I wrote about earlier this year.
I think Digg and other social media sites lose credibility if people digg and give thumbs up to any site no matter what the content is on the site.It seems that a site can have no content at all and still make it to the top on the social sites.Strange.
Just stumbled this post. 😛
Anyways digg,stumble and other social media sites are used for faked popularity and sometimes a good stuff buried around.
This doesn't mean they are of no use,I'm indeed fan of them.
