Yes, there are problems with all search engines and sites with hijacked domains. Why on earth pick out DMOZ? The underlying complaint is valid, but the singling out of DMOZ is just ridiculous.
The problem is link rot. Many directories wither and die because the people behind them don't pay enough attention to the problem of link rot. Dmoz, being one of the biggest directories, and a feeder to many other directories and search engines should be somewhat better. It is not for the simple reason that nobody has apparently sat down and thought about the problem. Instead it is all up to the random users who may or may not notice that a kid's website has turned into a site for hardcore porn.
This happens time and time again. What's the problem for some people? I just don't get it.
