amznVibe, take it easy. GoogleGuy will pass our concerns on after the holiday.
I'll pass those comments on, GreatVista. **************** During monthly updates, we'd pull down a fresh rdf dump for every monthly index, so as long as the rdf was available the directory would be fresh to within a few weeks. I haven't asked what the schedule looks like lately, but I'm happy to ask around. I might not reach them during the holidays, but I'll take this as a long-term request to keep the directory updated. (I'll be out of town for a few days myself this week, just so people know..)

Most of you understand but please be sure you get my point. The directory may be updated but there have not been new tags for quite some time.
I'm not sure why its programatically so difficult to list the directory tag for site when it's found in the directory? It's probably just a matter of refreshing the index for the directory, which given their mass of computing power, should be easy?
The lack of them being updated feels weird right now, like someone just forgot to do it.

The lack of attention makes me just a little optimistic that Google might be neglecting the DMOZ because they will be rolling out their own directory soon? I can hope anyway... that little saying about humans doing it better is cutesy and all...at least to me the bots seem more consistent.
