    The header is the hex code (key) for HD-DVD which caused unruly crowd behavior on Digg after a story was censored and Kevin Rose had to later post it on the Digg blog.

    Barbara Streisand (above) wanted to get the photos of her home (below) removed from a website – resulted in quite the opposite.

    “The Streisand Effect”. 1st Pic is of Barbra Streisand and the second is of her house in California. Streisand tried to get the photo removed from a collection online. This backfired on her and the photo became available all over the internet as people copied it around in protest.
