I'm still waiting for a response to some of my questions. So we'll see how responsive they are.
BTW, how did you find the notification letter? I almost deleted it as spam.
I talked to a Snap product manager before they launched the LiveDirectory and affirmed with him that I could deeplink thousands of pages. He said sure, go for it. And though the My Sites page took a while, until recently it always loaded succesfully.
Sorry for getting too on-topic for a off-topic board. :)
That happens every now and then in FOO, though we FOO-ites try not to let it happen often... hurts our slacker image.

I did the same with Snap, Yahoo, Go, and DMOZ. Snap looked at the pages, took time to review my explanation of how they might be useful to a "local" site within a portal, and said "OK." Yahoo said "maybe" while Go and DMOZ said "spam." (To be fair, some fairly high in DMOZ have since reviewed the site and said that I should submit again. I definitely need to do that.)
Given that the site has proven itself popular in NBCi, DMOZ says try again, and that Looksmart editors are sometimes adding the sites to their directory on their own, about 2 weeks ago I decided to give Go a quick test and submitted a total of about 50 pages under 2 states (these are individual town guides). This immediately drew protests from the local editors, I appealed once but it was declined. I mention this to highlight the different mindsets that the directories can have about deep-linking.
