    Can editors of a certain category deliberately delete those listings they do not want edited.

    I can see a competitor has 15 dmoz references to her website but each time I try - we get deleted. !!!!

    Oh hells yeah DMOZ editors are corrupt as heck. I cannot think of a single time any of my sites have been accepted and these are websites with lots of hand written unique content with plenty of history and stick to all of the guidelines. I have waited the months and years required.

    Sadly I have never been accepted as an editor either lol.

    The whole thing has become a crock of sh**. I've had three out of about 100 different submissions actually stick in the last 10 or so years.

    sorry for the offtopic question but why is it so important to be listed in DMOZ? I bought a dropped domain a year ago that was listed in DMOZ (and it still is) so I would like to know the benefits of that.

    TIA

    Well -

    1. All the competitors that are raping me all have DMOZ -

    2. If you have a domain with DMOZ Power use it -

    3. I have an idea then - what if we all signed up as independant's not promoting our own sites so for example

    If John is associated with Business A and he knows full well the editor is a competitor - then John becomes an admin in a completely different field Business B -

    John then lists Business B IE your business - then you do the same for me?

    Would that work?

    Surely it is only the admins of a specific part who are notified of new submissions?

    Surely if its that corrupt someone could do something about it? I did email the dude contact the following email:

    Hello Robert

    I have reason to believe a DMOZ editor is disapproving of listing submissions based on them having a non independent view of the category they are editing.

    Can you confirm that editors of category X will be able to be notified of new submissions to that category and thus delist those should they wish.

    Respectfully


    PS _ I am trying to register a fu**&* 6 year old domain with PR4 and 7k uniques a month
