May Day 2007: Digg Users Revolt, Kevin Rose Spins

May Day is a traditional day of the people, a holiday celebrating movements that work for the betterment of the "lower classes". It was a strange coincidence that May Day 2007 coincided with the largest ever online anti-censorship protest against a news site with user-driven content. Digg.com, the target of the protest, is a website that promotes itself as a democratic news aggregator but has repeatedly been accused of censorship.

The protest was in response to a Digg user's account being deleted for posting the numbers 09 F9 11 02 9D 74 E3 5B D8 41 56 C5 63 56 88 C0 (which constitute a key that facilitates the decryption of HD DVD content).
