Editorial Web 2.0 throws a lot of buzzwords at us. New technology has given us new terms to describe a particular design process. One of these is "user-centric" design. An example of a website that isn't user-centric would be A static site where the users have no control over the content of the site, nor any choice in what they see. The company displays the information they deem important. This is considered web 1.0. (Note by AS: a new site has gone live since this submission). YouTube and Digg are examples of Web 2.0, user-centric sites whereby the users of the site contribute not only the content that the other users consume, but each user helps decide what content is promoted. Today, I'm going to coin a new term: self-centric design. To define this new term, I will compare OSNews to one of the leading web 2.0 sites: Digg.

Sound off here: do you see a need for an ignore/block list?

NO. Reasons are stated in previous comments.

But I see need for little, almost meaningless button: I DON'T AGREE.

And number of non-agreements next to this button (or even some coloured thingy) - this way I can visually filter out interesting comments - because uninteresting or senseless comments will have this counter near zero.
