I got used to the fact, that you need a few months to get listed in DMOZ - all sites I managed to get there needed about 3-4 months before they were listed, and other aren't listed after more than half a year, and I hope they still might be eventually.

But recently, I submitted to DMOZ a page of my Institute (I work at an University), and it got listed in the same week. I wonder is it the case of unusually efficient editor of this category, or the rules for university sites are different (DMOZ trusts them more than private sites).

Anyway, has anyone else managed to get listed in DMOZ in shorter time than a week?

Well, and of course it all depends on what you call "evidence." We do hear about genuine problems, and the sheer number of ex-editors in SERP perp forums should indicate how seriously we take real problem.

But the vague character assassinations that you so love -- without any corroberating details -- say a WHOLE lot more about the character of the people who repeat them (and the intelligence of the people who believe them) than they do about the ODP.

You mean "character assassinations" as in blanket qualifications like "ignorant", "dishonest", "greedy", "malevolent", ...?!?

If you felt I was insufficiently specific:

You, sir, by your ignorant repetitions of your baseless calumny, have demonstrated both a reckless disregard for the truth, and a malicious contempt for specific persons who have never done you any harm.

Is that specific enough?
