Tired of Digg Sponsored Ads?

I visit digg.com on a daily basis for links to diverting and sometimes informative content. Recently, the site began displaying sponsored content (that is, ads) right in line with the actual content. Sure, there’s a pale gray disclaimer that these items are sponsored, but it’s subtle enough and my click instinct quick enough that I’ve clicked a number of links that seemed interesting only to find that they went to ads. I finally got tired of it and wrote a Greasemonkey script to hide these suckers If you’re a Greasemonkey user and a Digg user, you might find this user script useful.
