We all know that DMOZ doesn't have to do anything. But the *perception* is that since DMOZ is a large directory, and I have a legitimate site, there's no reason why my site shouldn't be included in the directory.
If DMOZ was a large blog, we wouldn't be having this discussion. But it's presented as a directory, and everyone knows that directories can be added to because they're meant to be all-inclusive.
It's time that DMOZ either admits that they can't cope with the number of suggestions, and stop trying ... or find a way to cope.
