yes THREE years. Thats a long time to be kissing ass in the DMOZ forum to try to shed some light.
Not sure who you were talking to or what forum you were on but the RZ forums haven't been up that long.
I agree with 'cleanup' - the guys at DMOZ need to cleanup their act.....But when it ends up taking YEARS of sucking up to them to get a site approved (or usually not approved), it is beyond any degree of toleration.
Would you really want editors listing/not listing sites based upon how much you do/don't "suck up"?
I really believe this has been discussed many times before that dmoz directory is a project with the user, not the webmaster in mind.
Also, I hope you do not depend on Alexa for anything more than entertainment. You can take a site up to the top very quickly with a browser, alexa toolbar, and a smart little tool :)
I can't figure out why I can't get my 3-page salesletter ebook accepted for Project Gutenberg either, and what really bothers me is they won't get back to me...stupid worthless crooked project anyways....
