I noticed a few months ago Bing was showing DMOZ descriptions on my home page so I added the following.

<META NAME="msnbot" CONTENT="NOODP">

It worked for awhile. Now it's back to the lousy outdated DMOZ description.

Change to ...

<META NAME="bingbot" CONTENT="NOODP">

or?

Isn't it:

<meta name="robots" content="noodp">

Didn't know msn/bing obeyed it anyway. I thought it was only google, who draw results from obsolete dmoz.

msnbot is the name of Bing's bot, it has not changed.
