Aggravating Aggregators

The thing I hate about news aggregating websites like reddit and digg are the same things I hate about the news media outlets like CNN: they are polluted with inaccurate, exaggerated headlines just to grab attention.

Another thing reddit and digg get wrong: they don't realize that visiting their websites should be all about the reader. Once we read a news story, it should not appear on the list anymore. We should be able to rate on who is contributing shitty stories and have their stories drop further down on our list.
