    I think people increasingly could care less whether they have a link form DMOZ. I would much rather have a link form a related site with low PR than DMOZ.

    I think that attitude would be great for the Directory, I'm all for it, :).

    This thread seems to have gone way off topic, but to the opening poster, YES some users do use directories to find things they like. I do all the time so I assume I'm not the only one.

    Google search results are often very poor so I'll give it a quick look to begin, but when I REALLY want results I'll scour directories or use Copernic search. When you're looking for good results, who cares what colors or graphics the site uses. It's irrelevant.

    Have you looked at the YAHOO! directory lately? It's way uglier and very close to useless... so why target your animosity towards dmoz.org ?

    The backlinks still work wonders for my site... Even dropped domains with a dmoz link still works... as long as dmoz doesn't drop that link.... And now most of the HIGHLY PROMOTED directories out of the scene, and google cracking down on paid links, the importance of Dmoz in link building has only increased..

    I'd anyway have a DMOZ link than a few blog roll links

    About the main topic... on using dmoz to find sites... Well, people do use it to find sites, but not for info :), I won't argue with others who actually go to dmoz to seek GENERAL info coz we don't have facts, but yeah DMOZ can be a great place to find sites/domains that might be a good target for acquisition... cheaply.. or to find partner sites for link request
