Sphinn's "Bury" Button Goes Live

If you haven't visited Sphinn, the new "Digg" for Internet Marketers, it's about time that you go. It's a bustling community of users who share informative stories about anything related to search, PPC, blogging, social media, and more.

And yesterday, one of the most controversial features has been launched. As editor Rob Kerry puts it, the Desphinn button is live. This is equivalent to "bury" (like Digg), "sink" (like shoutwire), "downvote" (like Reddit). The catch: if you Desphinn something, you actually have to provide feedback (in 50-250 characters) about why you didn't like the story. Your "desphinn" reason is then available for all to see. It's not anonymous. This prevents abuse of the system to Desphinn just everything.

As an added "bonus," if you will, the button doesn't appear for brand new users. You need to be a member on Sphinn for at least 7 days before you can see it.

What do you think about the Desphinn button? Will it hurt or help the community only promote the good stuff to the front page? Forum discussion continues at Sphinn.
