Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 22.214.171.124
I have noticed the google will alternate between your title or the ODP's title for the smae page, depending on the search term: if the search term includes a word from your title then it shows your title; if it does not but the ODP title does have the search term then it uses the ODP title.
So this is my debate:
A reason to block it would be because if I chose my title deliberately why would I want the ODP title which relies on some editor that may not know my site as well or be SEO'ed?
On the other hand, isn't it better that have the term highlighted in the SERP (if he used a term not found in my title but in the ODP title it is there)?

This is probably more likely if Google does not have the option of using the ODP info.
