You’ve got to see this then — wisdom from the mouths of geeks about the power of writing great headlines.
Apparently some Digger submitted a story about the all too important topic of hot billionaire heiresses (you know, like that Paris Hilton scamp you may have heard of). His submission was essentially ignored, while another Digger submitted the exact same story, wrote a better headline, and scored over
300 1072 Diggs as of the time of this posting.
The original submitter was not pleased, and yet he received zero sympathy.
From the comments:
When will people learn to stop whining about the fact that THEIR submission didn’t get dugg to the front page, but the one with the snappier, more descriptive, more appealing, and more funny headline and description DID.
Life’s not fair. Deal with it.
I rest my case.
