Referrer from editors.dmoz.org with param chainsaw=1
Good news or bad news?

Would chainsaw=1 represent good news, bad news, or indifference when seen in the referrer URL from editors.dmoz.org?

Sounds ominous to me...

Indifference. Your submission may have been accepted, it may have been deleted, it may still wait in the same category (i.e. because the editor couldn't take an immediate decision), or it may have been moved to a more appropriate category for review. I wouldn't automatically assume chainsaw=1 means something negative.

Glad to see the dmoz engineers still have a sense of humour....

Any hint as to what chainsaw means...? I'm curious now....!

As you can see by the link above, it isn't nearly as bad as it seems. It is just a way to view sites from more than one category at a time in one place. There are numerous reasons why an editor may look at a site from a chainsaw edit--it doesn't necessarily mean it was being reviewed or anything was done with the pending submission.
