You know, Yahoo isn't much better in my book. Yahoo also takes forever to list websites, and in my humble experience, often doesn't list them at all! And I'm not talking about the commercial sites - I'm talking about content websites. And they won't let you know why you got declined either...
Google gives high PR to links from Yahoo too. It's very frustrating that rich businesses can get listed there fast as lightning while small content publishers can't.
And before anyone jumps, I did read everything about how to list in yahoo and I think I submitted very carefully and correctly.
Now, at DMOZ the editors are volunteers, but what excuse does the rich Yahoo with thousands of paid workers have?
