    DMOZ is a free directory and there is no payment option. Suggest the site and move on.....there are way more important things to worry about than being listed in DMOZ.

    Why did you decide to ignore the submission guidelines that you agreed and suggest it to several categories, all but one of which are inappropriate?

    By doing so, you've added to the workload of our overworked and much maligned editors, contributing to a process slowdown for everybody.

    Stop now.

    Some editors will process your current suggestions in time, discarding all but one of them. You seem to have misunderstood my post so I've blocked your website from further listing suggestions so as to prevent even more squandering of our scarce resources by you.

    They are quite picky and in need of editors. I submitted mine into the wrong catergory (twice.) Let's see if the third time is a charm.

    Did you read the guidelines you agreed to when you suggested the site? The bit where it says, submit a site only ONCE. More than that you waste your time and editors time.

    You have to forgive people that don't think you are an editor. There is no real evidence that you are, as while you enjoy asking people to prove corruption within the ODP you have no trouble at all not proving you are an editor. So *shrug* laugh all you want too... there is no PROOF you are an editor, and you know we all think that hypocracy is funny, so we are all laughing with you!

    To put it as politely as I can, your memory is much less accurate than our records :(.

    I don't block listing suggestions lightly but I blocked yours from any more because you have several pending already - each of which will eventually consume editorial effort.

    We treat spammers more leniently than you probably do.

    oh man, DMOZ dudes, very cool!

    I understand people see things happen on the internet "instantly" and expect everything to go "instantly," but an email asking about the status of a pending subbmission or anything is a lot more graceful and productive of a move than pulling a monkey and hitting that submit button over and over.

    Submit more material to your own site before you start spamming your site as material to others' :\

    Only a few of our several thousands of editors have the stomach to attempt to explain things to the unknowing in external fora.

    I spend around 6+ hours per day editing, during which I take a break occasionally. I'm allowed to do whatever I like in that break such as talk to the wife, take the dog for a walk or get involved in conversations with you. The latter is evidently pointless so PLONK.

    Jim blocked you from FUTURE submissions because you had submitted more than once, he then told you that the submissions already made would be reviewed by an editor at some time. We never state any time frame for reviews, except from a few days to a few years. Blocking future suggestions, did not affect the present ones, so why the squealing?

    #GoldSEO
    Thanks for what you said, but DMOZ don't do status checks. It was found not to be helpful when tried at the support forum RZ. http://www.resource-zone.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=37604.

    People who breach guidelines and submit more than once just run the risk of being treated as spammers and then they will never ever get listed.

    Is there any real difference in being banned for submitting multiple times and never being listed while only submitting once? In the eyes of the many I am sure there is little difference at all....why would there be?

    Submit once, wait years upon years upon years upon years to get a review which may or may not have happened years ago and the site in question was simply rejected.

    Submit 10 times in 10 years, get banned as a spammer.

    Again, the only difference is time... to the end user though, it's a loose loose situation. It's good to know that one can submit competing sites to have them NEVER listed. It's sad that a listable site can be ousted due to the actions of someone that could be someone other then the webmaster. Kudos for putting the end user first!

    And kudos for following that rule on the add page, yet ignoring the one about submitting to the correct category. It's really good to know that I can just submit to any old place and the editor will move it for me even if the add page tells me that I'll get my site removed or rejected.

    And then you wonder why there is confusion! Come on, put the end user first!

    Guys, its obvious DMOZ doesn't need our business. Why everybody still trying to submit to DMOZ?! Why other directories are not created, which will process and accept applications much faster and editors friendlier

    Lets just boycott DMOZ, there is no use from them at all
