What is the deal with Zeal?

Hey guys - I know that Zeal is part of Looksmart, and apparently once you become a Zealot, you can shape some of the non commercial listings in directory. What is the current thought about how much traffic this can really drive? Anybody out there have good or bad experiences w/ Zeal?

From Zeal itself abouth.. nothing, but soon you are added to Looksmart; get good title and description and you can have good traffic from MSN.

As a Zealot you can't touch commercial sites or listings for them - those are the preserve of Looksmart's own editors. Zeal is the safeguard for making sure non-commercial, not-for-profit sites can still get listed somehow.

Of course, this still leaves a lot of power in the hands of a zealot that could be abused, especially in regards to non-commercial information sites that link to commercial sites.
