Is submitting to DMOZ worth the resulting scraper sites?
fuel for scrapers...

I've recently started a new site. Started out by submitting to *only* DMOZ while I finished my site.

I was happily entered into DMOZ - well, happily until recently. My site has now been scraped by well over a dozen scrapers.

My question to WebmasterWorld is it really worth it? I've managed to stop a few scrapers in their tracks as I watch my log files like hawk - but they still are going to get it.

There are other ways to get links, but DMOZ is held highly around here, is there a better way?
