Many directory use automated system to check the quality of article and decline many good/genuine articles for nonsense reason like; submitted in the wrong category, Bad formatting, Dup content etc. Some site owner ask money because too much crap has been submitted there, shouldn't they become selective rather rather than asking money.
That is certainly NOT a nonsense reason. I'm so tired of reporting "authors" who copy my content to hundreds of these so called "directories" in hopes of getting some sort of benefit for themselves while my original pages go supplemental or drop out completely.
Let's hope these directories go the way of link farms - and soon!
