I just came across a website that clames it provides instant dmoz listings at £149.00.
Sounds scammy, at first it looked like a regular paid inclusion site untill suddenly I see this buy now link next to the dmoz logo

I wonder if maybe they're an editor on dmoz?
If you can solve your problem, then what is the need of worrying?

I seriously think it's a scam!
A quick check of DMOZ for "dmoz paid inclusion" yields no results http://search.dmoz.org/cgi-bin/searc...paid+inclusion
And DMOZ's About DMOZ page says nothing about being able to buy a listing.

Am I missing something, or did they take the part about DMOZ down?

Looks like somebody keeps a close eye on their referrer logs. Anyway, this is what it claimed:

I guess that must be the "guest" hanging about in the forum.
