I have exactly the same comments to do about this open directory story, maybe in the past it was cool, but then now it is commercial, I know it because the listing of dmoz is re-sold to lots of commercial directories.

And I tried to be an editor for the director thing, since the only editor told me he had no time to add my site (which is modestly speaking as worthy as other director websites)
and lots of the links in this category are still outdated, then I receive an automatic reply who says they don't need an editor.
It is a shame for the people as a whole, because I won't ask again (had to write 3 samples reviews) and I would have certainly bring good content to the directory.. (not hard thing to do considering the poor content of this category)

Anyway, just to support what you were saying, that's it.

have a nice day
