Wheel, I feel for you. When I applied to be an editor I mentioned that I had a few affiliate sites, none of which would be suitable for DMOZ so I was surprised to be knocked back. I have spent over 20 years in volunteer work, including JoeAnt, so I know how rare volunteers are.
While I don't have any "corrupt DMOZ" stories of my own, I have discouraged others from submitting their sites as a result of that strange decision. Tell me, do editors get indoctrination that tells you to treat the world as guilty until proven innocent?
