---- Criteria for Assessing Free or Paid Directories

Besides, we add new features a couple of times a year, and some features require people to upgrade their submissions in order to participate in new features. It's kind of hard to notify them that they need to update their submission without an email address.
Sounds like a link exchange, not a directory; the single defining feature of a directory is that there is a human editor; if you surrender that responsibility and control to the submitter, then it ceases to be directory in the accepted sense of the word.
And yet the links are obfuscated too ... so why would people choose to be in the exchange? No link benefit, few referrels, once visitors read the owner-added descriptions ... Sorry, I just don't get it!
