More Strangeness going on with the Digg algo

A couple of days ago some strange things were going on with the Digg algorithm which meant that stories managed to hit the front page with only one or two Diggs.

Now today whilst browsing i noticed that 3 stories had managed to hit the front page with 0 or 1 comments. Usually a story gets a good 10 or so comments with a decent amount of Diggs to hit the front page.

I did have a screenshot right here but wordpress fucked up and overwrote it

Since the last little mishap we have been told that Digg have been playing around with the algo, should we now expect that new stories will have a longer life to make it to the front page and a less amount of comments?
