Has Yahoo dropped (or ever used) looksmart?

The Yahoo directory looks like DMOZ & google in structure and a lot of looksmart entries do not exist in Yahoo directory. Infact Yahoo directory seems to have the exact contents of DMOZ.

So is looksmart no longer used?

Not to my knowledge, but if I'm wrong, it won't be the first time.

Not from where I sit. It's not even close.

Yahoo has their own directory.

Isn't that how Yahoo started :/

I value the yahoo directory more than Dmoz it is how yahoo got started and its a great directory - wished i could say the same about their search results.

Call me crazy, but with all of Google's changes lately, I have found Yahoo's search to be fairly relevant and better than it was.
