I didn't bother renewing a BOTW listing and seem to be higher in SERPs.
I've been growing suspicious of BOTW listings for a while now. We've had a few sites tank after buying a link from them (let's be honest, it's link buying, not directory submission) but rankings normally came back after a re-inclusion request even if we kept the BOTW listing. Maybe a scare tactic against link buying? BOTW inner pages keep losing Pagerank, soon it will just be the main page!
