jmccormac, DMOZ is the exception and not the standard when it comes to web directories. Google scraped/rebranded that directory no too long ago as well. If people want their links removed from one of the oldest and most respectable directories, that is their prerogative.
DMOZ is a web directory with unpaid editors. I'd certainly differentiate them from the thousands of link directories that solely exist to trade cash for a link. Those who do are not adding sites to build a "resource" as being a "resource" is not their goal - making money is.
