U.S. Navy 'Top Gun' Pilot Questions 9/11

Sept. 5, 2007 - U.S. Navy ‘Top Gun’ pilot, Commander Ralph Kolstad, started questioning the official account of 9/11 within days of the event. “It just didn’t make any sense to me,” he said. And now 6 years after 9/11 he says, “When one starts using his own mind, and not what one was told, there is very little to believe in the official story.”

tips for digging - always

tips for digging - always open the story link from the digg site and leave it open for a couple of minutes before digging, this is a factor in the digg algorithm to check against 'blind digging'. Blind digging is digging a post without actually reading the story it is referring to. This is weighted against people who will BURY the story, again they have the same critera, blind digging doesn't count as much.

Does this mean that the Digg symbol link is not so good, as clicking it results in an immediate digg? Would it be better to just give a link to the article?

Thinking about it logically...

The only way anyone can tell where the DIGG button was clicked is if the referrer url is passed.

From what I can remember javascript does not do this, so I would expect it's ok to click the DIGG button above without worry.

Clicking on the manual direct http "Link" is much more likely to pass the referrer url (unless your firewall etc blocks it) - so might not be such a good idea, unless you click on the actual article link once at the DIGG website before "digging it".


I reckon the major difference is when you are actually on the DIGG website, I checked the DIGG code and it does register the click to the actual article (using "onclick"), so if you are on the actual DIGG website, I'm pretty sure you should not "blind digg" prior to clicking/reading the actual article to have full benefit.

So to summarize...

I reckon it's fine to DIGG via the "Digg" button above, but if you are browsing the DIGG website, visit the article prior to "digging" (which I suppose makes sense).


If anyone knows differently, please add commentary / input.

Many thanks and best wishes

thanks for clearing that up

thanks for clearing that up - saves me an extra step - but If i remember correctly javascript may not be passing the referrer url, but doesn't the browser make that info available? Most web log analyzing software and apps usually track ther referring URL - so no matter where you came from your browser can pass that info if it is requested from the webserver while serving up the page.

In anycase I would have to check some digg oriented blogs to find out the real deal.

If I get the time I'll do a packet sniff with ethereal...

But just to clear one thing, HTTP is a stateless protocol, which means it only connects for the duration of the request and the reply (then closes the TCP connection after the webserver directed timeout). client programs in Java etc can be persistent and maintain an open connection for as long as needed.

Typically when you request a webpage you send, browser, referrer, server, relevant cookies and a few other bits (this happens everytime, even when the "refresh" button is pressed).

I'm pretty sure javascript does not (as it is embedded with the HTTP request) but I may be wrong and would need to capture the header to confirm.

Also it may vary with browser etc, I don't do FireFox (yet) so I can't comment on that one.
