Ok, so the titling system leaves much to be desired.
This is the first hourly update on my rapid rise (or not so) through Diggs community popularity list. Not suprisingly it took a cracking 6 minutes to receive my first insult/flame (3:09 PM GMT) asserting that the digg story I'd posted linking to this column had been deleted and calling me a moron - half right, i'll leave you to consider which as you're reading this.
So, let's check out the progress:
Previous Position: 36,118
Time: Thursday Sept 28th, 3 PM GMT
Current Position: 35, 859
Time: Thursday Sept 28th, 4 PM GMT
Rank change: 259 places!
