My Daily Digg Disappointment (73) Thursday
Good morning, good day everyone,
Time once again for another DDD. For all of our new readers, the purpose of the DDD is to have fun, shout some great submissions that I think have a good chance of going front page and to highlight great friends' submissions. We throw in some cool vids along with it and the neat thing is, we do it all day long. So send me some shouts and let's see if it makes the DDD. So let's get right to some good submissions.

Divers battled Komodo dragon before rescue cnn.com — JAKARTA, Indonesia (CNN) -- Five Europeans rescued Saturday after an Indonesia diving trip went wrong had to fight off a Komodo dragon while they were waiting to be found, according to reports.
The story sat there all day and probably finished the 24 hour period with about 85 Diggs if I remember correctly and not even close to the front page. And then just now I see this story submission:
The Terrifying Truth about Komodo Dragons guardian.co.uk — Rinca Island in Indonesia - This Komodo dragon-infested spot is where three British divers who got caught in a rip tide washed up last week.

Nothing against my friend domfosnz, because he's just submitting a story, but it does show you how frustrating it can be when it comes to trying to make the front page.
