I agree with JDMorgan and Skibum's sage postings, but I'll also agree with the original poster's comment that if you feel you've received "poor service from dmoz for one reason or another, why give them further media attention?" If somebody doesn't like a directory, then by all means, don't use it, link to it, or submit to it! Why give yourself grief over getting a link from a website you don't even think is important? The Internet is large, and the ODP doesn't have a monopoly on the directory niche.
