Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
Although he talks a good game, he has no sites listed (just see the vast emptiness of 404s), uses gossamer threads which though a good product could not possibly handle anything the size of the ODP and has no financial backing for this *ahem* project.
Sahadi's "wndp" appears to be the latest in a string of attempts to reinvent the wheel, so to speak. It doesn't surprise me that he has contacted any number of participants in the forum since he is currently looking for capital in the form of cash and manpower.
Whether or not he has the wherewithall (pun intended :) ) to pull this off remains to be seen, but, I agree with brownsmurf that it is not likely given Sahadi's recent track record.
That's it for his entire directory as it sits.
Until he loads ODP data he isn't required to give ODP attribution. As Brett points out, ODP Editors and Staff are aware of Nick Sahadi and will be watching to see when (and if) he ever gets that far. WNDP would have to follow the same enforceable rules in that regard as others who use ODP data.
Although the home page certainly shows little (if any) imagination, I would be surprised if Netscape would find that it infringed their rights any more than dozens of others who use a similar starting page.
