I don't think there's ever been a site redesign that hasn't had very vocal criticism. Web site users tend to whine when they're disturbed in their little ruts and you can't just take criticism as constructive - just look at the outcry any time Facebook moves something by a few pixels.
I can see what you mean but with Digg, the difference can be felt even to this day. Front page stories have less than half the diggs they used to get, certain websites (like totalprosports and blogspam site bullshit) seem to have nearly guaranteed front page submissions regardless of diggs which removes the whole user-submitted aspect, and most of the news is never on time unless submitted by Digg staff.
It just feels so incredibly broken with a completely different feel since V4 and I'm surprised they were even able to offload this turd for 500k.
