And when you look at where the ODP originated.
When you look at where Yahoo originated, it was as a free directory much in the spirit of a community board, but then it took on some investors and reluctantly acquiesced to advertising.
First they pissed off the Free Software Foundation because they tried to capitolize on their name without espousing their principles. Then they acquired a bunch of free labor and sold them to Netscape for a million dollars.
And magically, Yahoo cleared up their unrevieweds and started answering emails when they started charging. Its time to face the fact that the free thing doesn't work.
