I love questions about the DMOZ. This post and one prior have brought
the DMOZ back to my attention. Normally I try to forget that it exists.
And I have to say I love the fascist comments about the DMOZ, I was
going to write something similar, you know how Hitler loved animals or
something, but at his heart was still evil. I think the DMOZ is very
much like that, there are obviously good editors, but there are also a
lot of skunks. But that is not the point of my question.
Someone had said Google is no longer using the DMOZ as the seed for the
Google directory? I have been playing catch up lately after being sick,
but I can't imagine missing that news. If that is the case, and Google
has dropped the DMOZ (which would be a good thing due to the nature of
how the DMOZ is being run) then really what does a listing in the DMOZ
produce for your website? Is there still such a benefit of being listed
in the DMOZ? I know this sounds like a real noob question, but I am curious.
