    Nothing, the homepage has totally been removed by Google.

    Maybe because of the paid links scandal they decided to do it? It sure would make crooked editors go away from it if links there had no value. But then all sites copying it would need to be penalised too. Excite copies them right?

    I dont understand why it's such a big deal... How many searchers find a directory via the homepage? If I am an average "joe" searching the engines, and I am looking for something specific such as sports related, or business, or whatever the search might be, then wouldnt I stumble upon the relevent category of the directory rather than the homepage?

    Just because the home page has been de-indexed does not mean the entire directory has been kicked out of the search results. Unfortunately, corruption is devious, and will most likely be affiliated with DMOZ for a long time.

    Its about time too. dmoz should have been the first directory to get penalized.

    I doubt it is a penalty, maybe it is just a glitch or something, dmoz still has about 195,000 pages indexed (but not the homepage, weird).
