It's an added feature that allows you to submit a particular post to the popular social news website Digg.com.

I think we might as well turn it off though, it's barely been used :)

Maybe because not many people know what it's for? What is digg.com and why would we submit a post?

It's just a portal for folks to share news, stories etc., that they have come across on the internet.

The website itself:

http://digg.com/

and, the Wikipedia's entry for it:

I've noticed that after it, the post, or part of the post, is often repeated, so that you get a twice as long post???

I'll see if I can do this at some point today.  The original files for the feature are corrupted it seems, which means it might take some serious work to remove it.
