A long time ago there were 200 websites in the world. It was easy to view them all and categorise them. The 200 became 200,000. It required a few volunteers to do the job. Still possible. The 200,000 became several million with many of them being auto-built and auto-filled with auto-crap. Have the number of editors scaled up proportionately to review this larger internet and weed out the larger amount of trash?
Volunteer editors ... are confident with DMOZ
And you think there's possibly a market for another volunteer directory built for the sole benefit of the volunteers?
