    dmoz doesn't have enough editors. They are all volunteer. I'm one. If you submit to category that has an active editor and your site is decent, you'll get listed. If there's no editor, you'll be waiting until someone edits the category.

    It might die out sooner than later. Half the sites submitted don't get approved. The ones that are approved/listed in dmoz were old sites, which are now offline (404). So its pointless.

    That's how rumours get started. If anything did happen to DMOZ I am sure there would be a public announcement, not just rumours.

    Now that there has been a formal announcement.....the editors are getting themselves sorted to do a new directory, under a new name, AOL own DMOZ. So watch this space.

    It did to many of us who spent many hours enjoying catching the web. But now it is just a memory until the new directory rises out of the ashes, better than ever.

    Now that social media signals indicate popularity, Google definitely no longer needs DMOZ. But it is still part of internet history. Then again, so were many historical figures ignored by the conquerors who (re)wrote history.

    Dmoz is outdated these days, I would suggest you to go with social media pages. Since link popularity is more important these days, increase your link popularity.
