If all of the DMOZ upper management agreed to venture here, to debate and discuss policy and practices with an eye towards implementing change, then I'd be happy to host all manner of exchange about the same. However, given the limitations of jimnoble's 1-man, 1-meta, 1-voice @ DMOZ role I'd ask that we not venture too far afield into DMOZ policy and practices.
Btw ..your discretion in your public replies is much appreciated .. and re-inforces my respect for you ..
Leo, that's a sentiment I share. I'm impressed (and happy) that any meta is still willing to publicly engage - voluntarily, no less (here and "there") - on the topic of DMOZ. I show and employ a measured degree of deference to metas who participate (attempt to directly address questions about DMOZ) out of respect and appreciation - especially since I'm well aware - as a WebmasterWorld moderator - that there are and long have been many folks here (past/present) ready to whine/whinge about OUR editorial practices. And, guess what? WE have a TOS policy that says/prohibits posts whining about US . . moderators. (Not sure folks ever entirely grasped how that fact might come into play in how I handled past engagements with metas here.)
