The Digg Patriots were a group of around 100 conservatives and Tea Party members who were active around 2010 on the social media site Digg.com, as well as other sites across the Internet. [1] At Digg.com, they engaged in active censorship of posts, burying or voting down any post they perceived as being liberal or progressive, upvote padding, and 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 reddit.com, 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.
