We have tried to submit our site to DMOZ numerous times over the past year. Each time has been correctly classified by the book, in accordance with their procedure, yet still no listing. This is not the first site we have had this with, and general sentiments online seem to concur.
It seems that DMOZ exposes itself as a "pure" organisation with admirable intentions. Really annoying that behind the scenes it seems to be rigged with competitors moderating threads or editors for hire. Total farce if you ask me.
Anyhow - back to the point. We have subsequently found a business which guarantees listing (or your money back) for $450. I'm not completely sure, but presumably they have a few DMOZ editors on their books.
Has anyone had any experiences getting sites listed this way?
