    I think they still listen to issues. But dont give you any info on your links submission status no more.

    But how can u tolerate that worst sites being added and your getting rejected without any base. And what more worse is that google still uses dmoz database.

    Forget it. DMOZ has been complained about for years and nothing much seems to change.

    Maybe your sites aren't as good as you think or maybe there is a 2 million backlog in your chosen category or maybe the editor for that category is a competitor? Who knows?

    I wouldn't bother trying to complain. It won't make any difference and the only thing that will have changed is that you will be older.

    Submit your site to other directories.

    What evidence do you have that your sites have been rejected? Or are you once again making broad sweeping statements that you can't back up? Please provide the evidence.

    1. Live links and signatures are not available until you have 10 total posts. :mad:
    So I can`t post the link.

    Try "ODP Abuse Report System" on Google. :cool:

    How odd. I have no trouble believing that at all, based on your posts here at DigitalPoint. In fact, I might be looking for the complaint button if your sites WERE included...

    You can post the link - it just won't be a live link until you meet the post requirement.

    They get time to add several thousand sites a day.

    They get time to process update requests, usually within several days of them being submitted, so that the sites that ARE listed are listed correctly.

    They get time to delist any redirects that are found, or bait-and-switch schemes. (Difficult to find, so it takes up a lot of time)

    Those, I would say, are the major priorities of most editors.

    Not getting your site listed is not, per se editorial abuse - if you are going to file an abuse complaint you are going to have to do it based on more evidence than "My site isn't listed yet, so the editor must be a competitor of mine".

    Based on your posts here, seoindia, and your history of wild unsubstantiated assertions which you can't back up, I would advise against wasting editor's time with an abuse complaint.
