Whilst we know this nor the public forum is the place to discuss internal dmoz politics there is some intersting stuff going on involving Mr Skrenta, various DMOZ metas, and rubberstamped.org.
It seems Mr. Skrenta approved the listing for a directory (rubberstamped.org) which doesn't meet the stringent guidelines for directories to be listed in the ODP. There are questions as to whether the listing was approved in return for marketing value received.
Another question which has arisen is the practice of finding a directory with unique content (for a directory I mean this to be qualified listings that are not in dmoz) and then adding the listings to dmoz while removing or rejecting the directory for a lack of unique content.
