Brian...thanks for your comments and support. We have sent several "Feedback" messages to DMOZ documenting the AOL rankings of the Editor as well as proving that our title has been fudged; so far no response back...but this isn't going to die. We've also copied our messages to AOL (again no response so we'll locate their legal dept. and pursue it).
We just want fairness...DMOZ's Editor standards clearly state "we will not tolerate editors who only add their own sites, or maliciously interfere with others' listings in the directory" but after reading David's link....well....it is grim but doable. In the meantime, we will continue to pursue this with DMOZ.
