Looking for any kind of substantive information on the current state of DMOZ with regard to SEO. Is it still valuable? If so, how valuable? Compared to Yahoo, etc...? There's about 20 other threads with the text "DMOZ" in the title, but tbh most look quite lame, however one particular thread has a great post by dotcomdesigns that is a "must read": http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/black-hat-seo/421408-dmoz-listing.html#post4027486 Also, any 1st-hand accounts of getting a DMOZ submission accepted. How long ago, how many tries did it take, etc... Did anyone pay to get a DMOZ listing and if so how much? Did anyone get scammed into paying (lol) and if so how much did they lose? Looking for more recent accounts, although "back in the olden days" threads might be useful for context. I've read that DMOZ is becoming less & less valuable, maybe they are not even processing submissions anymore?
