Has dmoz got a mail problem?
I submitted a site and have waited so sent a email asking if their was a problem but on two attempts now I'm getting "Proxy Error,The proxy server received an invalid response from an upstream server. The proxy server could not handle the request POST /cgi-bin/send2.cgi.
Reason: Error reading from remote server"
whats the best way to contact Dmoz? - or is there any point !

I read that they are getting through but how do we know for sure?
My site had been listed for 10 yrs but recently dmoz crawled while my webhost server was down which resulted in my site getting removed. My category has never had an editor. I tried sending a message explaining the situation to 3 upper level editors crossing my fingers it got through. Also, I tried resubmitting it again since it is not on the list. Now I'm wondering if Google directory will remove me when they crawl the dmoz directoy. Frustrating!

I've completely given up with dmoz as they don't list sites and are a waste of time - I've lost count how many quality sites I've tried to submit that never get listed - and its just so odd how the editors sites and probably their friends all seem to get listed - waste of space

I followed the instructions that they put on their website. Contact higher up category editor if none exists with an explanation/request and to try resubmitting.
I don't understand why that would mess things up if they tell people to do those things. With the proxy error page coming up after each message you send to an editor they don't really give you much choice.
Ten years ago one of the editors had added my site without me even applying to dmoz. I had to get another editor to move that into the category I wanted it to be in which took months since no editor for the category.
Hoping this doesn't mess up my Google directory listing.
