Got an error when submitting

    So after I clicked submit just now I got this page URL http://www.dmoz.org/cgi-bin/add.cgi

    Which had this text:

    Anyone else? I'm posting here cause even though it's been a couple of years since I submitted anything to DMOZ, I must assume they haven't changed and reporting it I'll never hear back ;). So, does one dare resubmit in this case, or assume it went through? Don't want to piss off the DMOZ Gods and submit twice and end up being banned forever with the police @ my house tomorrow.

    I got errors before *shrug* I resubmitted. Though they didn't send the police to my house, but there was a horse's head on my bed the next evening, lol ;)

    If you submit your site twice in a row, and it only happens like once, I hardly think you have much to fear.

    That's a ridiculous statement. They don't use police anymore... they have in-house death squads.

    Yes, but fortunately they are required by law to wear special plumed hats and blow a trumpet , so we all have a chance to hide. ;)

    But seriously folks ... if you suspect that your suggestion has not been processed by the AOL machinery, please repeat. Two or three repetitions will not be seen as spamming, because editors are all too aware of technical problems over which they have no control. (Sigh)

    However, 10, 20 or 30 suggestions of the same site are very difficult to attribute to technical problems, even by the most generous volunteer, so such situations could certainly be regarded as spamming.
