I have submitted my web site to Zeal, and it was rejected because of the CJ and Adsense on the site.

The reasoning was "technically it is a commercial site".

When I pointed out that all the other sites in the category had advertisements and banners, some even more profusely, and their content was limited at best, I was informed that his decision stands, but if I have the problem with the others I should take it up with the Editors.

My site is a discussion forum, no fees, and all support comes from the ads.

The questions -
Should I pursue Zeal inclusion? Does it worth it?

If so, is it better to complain to the editors, get someone else to submit the site, devine intervention, or ...?

From my experience, the value of a Zeal listings is virtually zero since MSN stopped carrying the listings. It may be beneficial in some categories & every little link helps but as far as direct traffic from Zeal, haven't seen a referral in over a year.

The reviewers over there are on a power trip with there worthless directory, that has no pull.

I use to review sites over there and I cant even get anything approved any more in categories I dont have enough points to manage.
