The Digg Patriots were a group of around 100 conservatives and Tea Party members, who were active around 2010 on the social media site, as well as other sites across the Internet. [1] At, they engaged in active censorship of posts, burying or voting down any post they perceived as being liberal, or progressive; upvote padding; conspiring to have progressive editors banned, while running multiple accounts in order to circumvent blocks received by their own members. [2]

Their actions were exposed after a year-long investigation.

The Digg Patriots later migrated to, where they congregated at /r/NoLibsWatch, where they continued much of their previous behavior by downvote brigading, doxxing, and filing false reports to get reasonable users who disagreed with them banned.
