Digg Rigging Site, Spike the Vote, Is Active

The site aimed at gaming social media site Digg has sent out notices to its users that is has reached their required number or users to go live. When you log in for the first time, you have to agree to their terms of service, which I find is the best part:
Spike the Vote Terms of Use
You are not allowed to login at Spike the Vote:

1. if you are currently employed or ever have been employed by Digg, Netscape, or del.icio.us;
2. if you are a current contractor or ever have been a contractor for Digg, Netscape, or del.icio.us;
3. if you or the company you work for has ever been paid by Digg, Netscape, or del.icio.us;
4. if you are affiliated with Digg, Netscape, or del.icio.us in any way more than a registered user of their services;
5. if you intend to contact Digg, Netscape, or del.icio.us about anything related to Spike the Vote.

I'm not sure that this will stop anyone from logging in let alone stand up in court, so its point I am not sure. There are no "missions" yet, they start Saturday, so stay tuned for how it works out.
