Mr Wales said. "Computers are notoriously bad at making such judgments, so algorithmic search has to go about it in a roundabout way.
"But we have a really great method for doing that ourselves," he added. "We just look at the page. It usually only takes a second to figure out if the page is good,so the key here is building a community of trust that can do that."

ODP never managed it, Wikipedia has not managed it.
The need for volunteers will always create communities who are either self interested in promoting their own sites at the expense of competitors or power hungry in advancing themselves in the community.
