DMOZ — yet another flame war

My latest thoughts about DMOZ and the ODP may be found in this blog comment thread.

The gist is:

Or something like that. As I said, it’s a flame war …

    Oh no! The horrors! πŸ™‚

    The good news is that I’m sitting here on a lovely beach watching the pounding surf.

    The bad news is that the main reason we bought a timeshare on this particular beach is the calm, clear waters that make for wonderful walk-in snorkeling. Hurricane Felix is screwing that up a bit this time …

    The whole thing has become a soap opera.

    Bottom line is DMOZ has to improve their system. There is a huge communication problem because there is no communication.

    DMOZ is outdated I think. Contains broken links or not existing web links.

    Oh my God !

    Thank you for the info & discussions. I guess I was totally wrong because i’d frequently used DMOZ for my research. I should refer to other resources next time then. πŸ™‚
