---- Is the DMOZ Server Repair Delay Undermining the ODP's or AOL's Reputation?

If DMOZ is unimportant, why do people (apparently) still get upset about not getting their sites listed?
Because many have this notion that an ODP listing is a magic bullet.
It may have been at one point in the past, but that has long since changed. A listing in the ODP is just that, a directory listing. It's no different from a Yahoo! listing or any other directory listing. And, since it is a free listing (for most), you just submit and forget it. ;)
