A challenge to DMOZ bashers

Give or take a corrected typo, here’s a challenge to DMOZ bashers I just wrote in the flame war thread.

If you want to do something that is:

A. Correct
B. Credible
C. Potentially useful

just go find a specific category with terrible listings, and publicize the fact with overwhelmingly clear proof of your assessment.

If that’s not EASY for you to do … then maybe DMOZ isn’t so bad after all, eh?

In particular, I’d encourage you to post a version of the category that is clearly better than what is currently there.
